Artist's Description

The lesson from this image is that it pays to be prepared (camera at the ready), just in case. I went to my local botanical garden today, not to create photos but to turn in some paperwork to the gift shop so that my greeting cards can appear for sale within the next few days. On my way out of the garden, I noted that one of the huge magnolia trees at the edge of the parking lot had a couple of blooms on low branches. This one was at a beautiful stage, and I loved the way the one petal arched over the center, protecting it as if it were royalty. Note the way the center returns the favor, casting a subtle golden reflection on the underside of the sheltering petal.(Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/160 sec., ISO 200, open shade, handheld)
