Great impact with these dazzling colors George, the short DOF is perfect for this. Very good use of the natural light, a pleasure to view :)

Hi George,a magic composition and a beautifull idea,but for me there are a lot of parts out of focus,i know how is difficult this macro and how is great your idea,but the result isn't what me...and i think you...had imagine.Thanks for share,have a nice day,LUCIANO.
George, your presentation here GREAT in colour and may be artistic compostion. As a biologist i tried to understand the kind of flower, which species? But i could not find any knowledge in your note. The shallow DOF does not allow understanding complete anatomic features of this flower. May be my English is not sufficient to interpretate somethings, but i hope you can understand me what i say.
PS. May be you can accept this comment as payback! Yesss!!
Payback! because if you want to find any fault with one, it is really easy! because there are faults in every things even in splendid ones. Nothing flawless!:))
By the way, the butterflies allready have their own eyes:))) You see!
I am teacher but i do not want to pointing you. You have to check MY INTRO PAGE once more! I think you've found new supporters in these days and you get excited again.

Una verdadera belleza de la composición del interior de esta flor, colores muy agradables y bonitos, buena nitidez y perfectos contrastes. Una imagen para mi excelente.
Una explicación tambien excelente.
Un saludo de Antonio
I agree with the fact that this image is very very artistic, proving once more your skills as a photographer.
But, from the botanical point of view it is completly wrong! What you have photographed here is the tepal of the Iris flower. There is a group of irises which have this characteristic, called bearded iris. The stamen is hidden in the upper "tepal" that we ussualy see which is in fact the stigmat transformed in such ormation.
So, I will suggest to you to look carefully at a Iris flower to identify those components.
All the best,
