Magnificent Macro of Nature

I think this photo is one of my best. It is so magnificent and is an amazing macro of nature. It looks like a painting.

I worked a long time to arrange for some backlighting for this orchid that my friends Jim and Marica Lowman brought to me.

I then patiently kept taking photo after photo to get just the right composition with the colors and textures. I really like how this image turned out. Happy Monday!

Check out our travel photos of the fabulous pyramids in Mexico called Chichen Itza at Viva la Voyage!

I agree, that's quite a photo. Looks like a circus clown's mouth opening up to say, "ahhh!" for the dentist. I'm being funny...it's ideal and would look superb blown up and framed. Hard to get that lighting, and the perfect symmetry of your photo. Sweet!
