Hallo John
A wonderful display of purity and innocence I see when I look at this lovely image. The details captured is so beautiful to look at. The floral backdrop emphasise the details of this beauty to its best. I was indeed a pleasure to look at this pretty picture. It is just a pity your image is so small, as I personally feel it would have drawn much more attention if it was the standard 800 x 600 size. It is a very "friendly" image. Best regards and thanks for sharing.
