Such a beautiful flower! Your framing does create a very attractive composition and the lighting management is excellent. I like how the red flowers stand out against the vibrant green of the leaves.

merci Steve pour votre passage sur mes images, j'adore cette fantastique lumière très vive et transparente qui met en valeur le rouge des étamines, atmosphère irréelle et féerique qui nous fait entrer dans un microcosme presque virtuel. A bientôt Steve.

Interesting, orange honeysuckle. I love the green and the way the sunlight makes it look like it's been highlighted. I also love that I can see it's veins. Fantastic!
