Congrats and your blue ribbon; nicely done. I did one similar to this for the orange challenge (5th place) but yours is much better, expecially with the background. I have a lot to learn.

There tend to be a fair number of flower entries in lots of challenges. I often pass by them relatively quickly even though many are well shot. However, this one stopped me. Extremely well executed.
