Hello Gerard,
These beautiful flowers remind me of some of the plants I usually see in rain forested areas of South America. Like tiny bells hanging from a balcony, about to ring out their beautiful notes for all the world to hear. I'm sure they are a stunning sight to see when a whole cluster is in full bloom all at once. Great shot!!

Mario from Calgary with best regards.

Hi Gerard,
Beautifully composed shot, everything is superb except for a little overexposure on the white parts, and depth of field, which could be a bit less shallow (some of the flowers are out of focus). Lovely photo... but those lost details vex my sensitive eyes.
Best regards, László

Interesting flower...interesting capture...hope someday you will post the inside of the flower..

Beautiful, delicate flowers tastefully framed. You have captured the colors well with no excess saturation evident.
