Congratulations! This is the Image of the Week selection for the Flora and Macro Gallery, week ending 14th October, 2011!

One evening, last spring, at sunset I laid down trying to make a decent picture of this lovely Anémone printannière (which is quite rare) when an ant popped out. The ant makes all the difference.

This picture in listed in the finalist shots at the International Nature Photography Contest in Montier-en-Der in France.

Lovely image Sebastien. Congrats. Would like to see a more cropped version of the flower and ant if possible as well.
Enjoy viewing

Nice soft palette of color with just the right amount of sharpness on the ant. Nicely captured.

Beautiful image - the pink background and the posed ant send it over the top.

Well, it is an image that has nothing to envy the ones that did make it. :) Sincerely, congrats!
