Hello Odile,
What a beautiful bud you have photographed here, love it's unique shape and pretty colors. Unlike anything I have ever seen here in the states. I am going to have to look it up on the web to see what it looks like when fully open.
Good job of stacking the images in order to give DOF. I like the off center composition and lovely exposure. TFS.

Sharp macro Odile of this bud.

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Odile,
What a fantastic bud you have photographed here.
