Protection by Celeste Mookherjee
Clear

An intimate study of a single calla lily, emphasizing the sensuous curves of this elegant flower. I chose the title because the spathe surrounds and seems to be protecting the spadyx, which reminded me of the title one of my favorite songs by Massive Attack. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/160 sec., ISO 400, open shade, handheld.)
