NOT FAIR!!! It will be several more months before I can afford to buy me a good camera, till than I'm stuck with my cell phone camera. This picture is so clear and shows such detail I feel like I could touch the flower. Also not fair as I see all these wonderful pictures of flowers and my list of "I want" gets longer and I don't have room here in this mobilehome park for all the pretties you show
