Starting from a tight tulip bud, an Easter gift, this tulip developed colour and form. Captured just before the first petals fell.

Nikon D200, Sigma 50 mm f/2.8 macro.
Camera on tripod, manual focus, timer. Captured from the side with a spotlight on the stamen.

Featured in One Single Flower on Show

Part of my Spring Collection:

Title inspired by The Wind Beneath My Wings by Bette Midler

“Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that’s your way.
You always walked a step behind.”
