I Love this my Carletta. The minute I saw it I thought I wonder if this is from the bouquet that Lucy and Lily sent you. It's just beautiful :)

Beautiful, Carletta, very beautiful! I can never get the middle of the flower clear... the petals turn out clear & the middle is always blurry. LoL!

Beautiful Carletta. I had looked at the full bouquet last night, but today I looked back-and-forth between the two pictures; I still don't know how you do it, but I love it!

Beautiful ~ for some reason it reminds me of fresh fruit. I don't know if I want to smell it, eat it or both. LOL Thanks for commenting on my site.

I was taking pictures of my beautiful amaryllis this morning, and was trying to do exactly what you've done; get those stamens in sharp focus!

You've got a great picture!
