Awww you're so very welcome for the comment. I really did love this shot. I wish it would have taken something higher up on the page (like 1,2 or 3 but hey a top ten??? I mean that's gold in my eyes already. I really do just love this picture. BTW I hope you don't mind me trying it someday. I need to get my new camera first because the one I have now doesn't hit F/16 so it will be a while.

Again your most welcome for the comment, and the FAV. I hope you upload a beautiful print for this. I'm sure that someone would want it.

<----- ME. Anyway, Wonderful job and Congrats on you're top 10.

High mark for taking a flower picture beyond simply coloring one of the blooms. I don't how you got a perfect bubble like this but well done.
