Rick from Toronto, Canada

Yeah, the kind of "in your face" that I don't mind one bit!

@Rick: Ha thanks! In truth I was on my tippy toes, iPhone over my head. So I'd have to thank the universe 100% for the way this turned out. Glad you dig it!

I don't know if it's your pov or not but it looks huge! And it's beautiful :-) Gorgeous framing, tones and openness of the flower.

@Abena: I guess it was the pov... I saw this beauty up in the tree and really had to stretch out to get a shot, but I guess it was worth it.
