Good catch. That's a nice run you've been on lately.

what makes this a cut above the genre is the apparent distortion or slight wibble to the centre of the sunflower. the wizard wiggles his fingers and lo, we are drawn in just like the monarch. well, yes, there is also that holy healing saffron yellow.

Lovely shot all around. Nice point of focus and DOF. It looks to have a tad of a greenish hue on my monitor. When I look at this shot I want to see it with warmer colors. (none voter, just commenting)

this would be good for a yellow on yellow challenge, and a beautiful FS entry

I can't decide if I like the flower or the monarch more.
