    Hard as I tried I just couldn't get a very good picture of this flower. I keep seeing these around and would like to try one but they look sooooo exotic and maybe beyond my novice skills.

    No need for apologies, Mikki. Your photos are great!! I particularly like the first picture - very well composed. I even like the slightly out-of-focus flowers in the foreground giving the whole inflorescence a rounded 3D look. I also like the slightly diagonal composition. The only 'flaw' (if you can call it that) is the grey blob at the bottom, slightly off-centre right. But , of course you can easily photoshop it off. Did you use a macro lens ?

    Very nice shots! I agree "gray blob" removal would be helpful and a bit sharper focus on the flower in the foreground with the ones on either side slightly out of focus instead would be better IMO, but nice pics all the same.

    Thanks all for the encouragement! This is a work in progress for me... my learning curve time. I did Photoshop the last picture and should have done the other one but I got lazy... it would have looked better with a more black background.

    Great photos Mikki. I have this one but did not realize the stunning details until you show these. Thanks for sharing.
