This tulip was already fading and the petals beginning to turn and fall but somehow I still found it attractive. I also like the contrasts between the deep yellow pollen and the purply petals.

Nikon D200, Sigma 50 mm macro. Lighting: Spotlight from a “mother and son” standing lamp focussed on the flower, with black card fixed to the wall behind as background.
