Hello Nirmal,
This is a beautiful image!
Technically on a high level, and excellent composition and superb sidelighting. This, together with the OOF dark natural BG makes the flowers stand out well.
Though you don't mention it in your note, the flowers and leaves suggest that this T. amplexicaulis is a type of thistle, (Compositae), but I'm no botanist.
A fine image that deserves more credit and thanks for sharing it!
Regards, Ivan

Bellissima immagine, ottimi POV e composizione con BG scuro che esalta i bellissimi colori dei fiori, buona nitidezza e splendida luce. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Very nice lighting and colors.
