Congratulations for your success on this macro!

This one of THE most amazing macros I have ever seen!!!! The clarity, the composition, the colors, the DOF...This photo is one of the highest standards of photographic excellence, even photographic royalty,...I have EVER known! 10, strike that,...11!!!!!!!!!!!

Florals are consistently THE MOST PRAISEWORTHY photos that I have ever produced, yet here I am staggered! I bow to greatness! :)
