Hi Shir,
I remember the day well...waiting for you to come over so we can have another flower hunt.Lovely light that has illuminated the flower with such warm and attractive colours.Nicely composed with the yellow flowers an added bonus.Take care mate.
Regards, David

This photo is so full of light and color, very beautiful. I love the lupine, it is after all done in my favorite purple. It's wonderful to see it doesn't look too different on the other side of the world. I love this capture of the lovely lupine, well done.
