WOW, I JUST LOVE THIS ABSTRACT, SHEZ. LOOKS LIKE A BAY IN TROPICAL WATERS ON A VERY CALM DAY.

I think you could do 30 days of this plant without running out of beautiful images. My favorite is the first one you posted, but this is a close second.

The texture and colors are amazingly well rendered. your new lens is working wonders Shez! The composition and the square crop are good choices for this image. Keep your beautiful plant images coming - I enjoy them all!

The white edge of the leaf makes the curve line jump right out, even in the thumb in this shot. Sweet colors, as always with your macros.

This is incredible with the limited DOF and the curving lines and the colors.

Another beautiful shot of this staghorn! The colors and velvety texture is again amazing. I think I may have liked just a little bit of the blurry left hand side and bottom cropped out, but otherwise, this is beautiful.

These plants are getting great mileage! This image almost has the feel of going into a cave. The detail on the spores are great. How far away are you able to get with the 180 mm lens when you're setting these up?

Very good, but I liked the first one even better! On day 1, you showed off the beautiful texture on the front of the leaf as well. This day2 pic is more abstract, and I would probably guess that it was a piece of leather if I didn't already know ...

Love the detail on the leading edge. I won't get tired of this plant any time soon.

With colour like that I can understand you wanting to take as many shots of this as you possibly can. This is again well composed and the use of the shallow depth of field is excellent.

Yay! Another shot of this beautiful plant! That is quite a shallow dof, but I love the texture that you captured on the edge of that leaf as well as the curves. What a fantastic plant for this challenge!
