Bonjour Gerard,une macro magnifique avec une correcte exposition pour capturer le blanc dans la meilleure maniere,excellents details aussi,un peu trop saturee' selon moi.Bon WE et merci,Luciano

The spring flowers from Europe are now making their pleasant appearance here on TN and this one is a real beauty, Gerard.
You have captured these fresh and delicately coloured ones very superb control of the light conditions.
Thanks for sharing the picture and best regards.

Hallo Gerard
This is truly a beautiful image of a beautiful flower in a beautiful setting. The details of the petite, orange coloured anthers are truly stunning. The light is just *magic*, not only bringing out the colours to the best but also throwing shadows on the white petals. I like this one a lot. Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Hello Gerard,
You have photographed this cluster of Hawthorn blossoms perfectly. The white petals with their orange anther are simply stunning to view. Love the super fine detail and excellent white balance.
Looks like Spring has come to your country. We had a pretty heavy snowfall just this morning, but by late afternoon it had all melted away.
