Kell, what kind of camera do you have? It's time to get another camera and all I take photos of, are flowers. Needless to say, they aren't as good as yours. And yes, I agree, beautiful photo.

Thanks you guys! Hi Debbie. I have had a few cameras now thru the years, all Canons but one. Tomorrow I am getting a new one, Canon PowerShot S100. I think in 2008 for this photo, I had the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS which gave excellent photos though this one is a bit fuzzy. I think my favorite pictures were from my Sony DSC-H50. So why I keep buying Canons I know not! I may get anot
