What a crisp and clear fantastic photo! I must snoop to see what camera was used. PERFECT! New plant to me too!

Thank you all. Kell, this was taken with a very inexpensive Canon A480 using the super macro feature. Great little compact camera, fits in the pocket nicely. I also recommend the pasque flower if you don't have it - emerges early, fills in with feathery foliage, the blooms are jolly, the seed heads are a whole 'nother show, and after deadheading the foliage stays nice and full through the summe

And I just paid $1000 for a camera and all the pictures from it so far suck! LOL I think we all need our own 'Papageno'! It is a great color too!
