The "decay" is at times more attractive than the flower in its prime! It has more....character! I love your capture! It mirrors well what happens to all of us, flowers and humans....

And very nice decay too Steve ! I really like this shot and the composition ! The light, color is wonderful !! This would work very well matted and framed !!
