Took some time trying to get this the way I wanted it. This Beeblossom variety had a four foot long stem that just floated around in the slightest breeze... Captured handheld, late August.

What a beautiful and unusual flower. You chose an angle that shows the intricate flower parts at their best.

What a beautiful flower with such wonderful form and slender flowing lines! Excellent capture, Neil!

Lovely flower-nicely contrasted against the dark background.

A very nice shot with dark shades that perfectly highlight the beauty of this particular flower.
I know well that it also means a single breath of wind with the macro on the flowers,
perhaps interminable times to wait for the subject to stop, being in the most uncomfortable positions :)
