A single tulip, isolated from the first small patch of blooms at my local botanical garden in early February. I switched to a zoom lens because I didn’t want to step on the very soft soil and disturb the new growth in this patch. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 202mm, f/6.3, 1/200 sec., ISO 100, late morning sun, handheld) Textures courtesy of Shadowhouse Creations.
