There were some other about to flower buds around and this one caught my eye. It was in some undergrowth so took a bit of maneuvering.

Anything at all.

Very nice, David. I like the slim format you chose. The twist of the stems and the difference in their colors makes the one budding stand out nicely against that nice smooth background.

So very graceful, David. Love the flowing lines and the complimentary colors. The vertical crop enhances the photo so well. Very nicely done.

Thanks @Shirley_Freeman and @linda_mellor . The pattern of lines and shapes made me think of a small child reaching to be picked up. Pleasant.

This is quite good. Your cropping is very clever here and enhances the flow of the image. I also love the contrasting colors. Great job!

David: Nice find and a fine capture. I do like the vertical pano crop. I might have rotated the camera a bit so that the diagonal of the stem brought the right branch closer to the URC or even crop some more from the right side to decrease the open space there. I think I’m just rambling and overall I like this fine as is. >=))>

Thanks @BrandonPHX and @Bill_Fach I am glad you liked the crop. It seemed a natural.

Bill I had also thought about taking a bit more from right side but didn’t. I think it would also work.
