Taken during an early morning bush walk. This flower jumped right out at me as the early morning sun hit the green leaves in front of the flower. After a minute or two the sun had risen further shifting the light and letting the flower fade into the background of the bush land.
Taken with a Sony SLT-A57, 300mm lens, f/5.6, 1/80sec, ISO-100.
Location: Haig Street Quarry Bushland Reserve, Ipswich City, Queensland, Australia.
