    Sitting here wondering just how you got this shot!! Excellent. Beautiful color!!

  • It was on the uppermost branches, I shot up. The pistol and stamen thingy was sticking up above the flower like it wanted to dance in the wind. There was not wind until I got ready to shoot and a moment later the rain came while the sun was still shining. A dark cloud came and went quickly, a short summer shower. Otherwise, I would have taken more shots.
