Eye-popping


I took this macro shot of a bloom on my clumping gazania plant in my back yard on Sunday.  I don't have the best of luck with plants so when I saw this bloom I thought I had better get out there and snap a few pictures quick.  I especially liked this macro shot.  I sure hope this plant survives my rather dismal gardening talents because these flowers are gorgeous.

It's a super photo. Looks like you used one of those Photoshop "actions" that explode a flower! Great job!

I am pretty sure that now that your backyard knows that you have a camera it will behave and show you its best...
Wonderful picture!

Aren't you a clever girl, Sharon. Growing this nice flower and then taking a fine macro shot of it.
