Artist's Description

Poinsettia is the classic Christmas flower to many, and this capture is from the day after Christmas (and an overnight rain) at my local botanical garden. This is not a potted plant but rather a very large shrub (about 8 feet high) at the edge of the dahlia garden. The gardeners cut it back after its blooming season, and it grows back strong and healthy in time to bloom again for the holidays. The actual flower is the yellow part. The red parts are actually bracts (leaves). (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/160 sec., ISO 400, overcast, handheld)
