I was happy to find this jewel. I only found one bloom in the middle of another vine of flowers. The light was high noon and I did the best I could with it.

Thank you for the nice comments and encouragement. I am thrilled that I placed where I did in this challenge. I've never seen this type of flower and have learned it is a Passion flower.

Its an attractive image overall. Colours and details are fine. Composition is little bit weak. It's providing sence of abstract and puzzle macro where I can't count this image as abstract as well as puzzle macro technically.

Great focus!! I tried so hard to get a good shot of a passion flower because of the way the color radiates in a burst. Funny thing, my husband said to call it "blast off". In the end I wasn't satisfied with that shot and went with something else. Congratulations on a beautiful macro.
