Thanks for another favourite, mama_mermaid.

This was with a manual-focus zoom lens that I was trying to
use as a macro lens. So I was very determined to get the
focus exactly right.

Going through the pictures later, I kicked myself for being so
single-minded, there was a spider or daddy-long-legs in the
background (which I did not notice at the time). It would
have given me more options if I had spotted it at the time!

Gorgeous flower & shot! Well done =)

Thanks @Fizgig, I was really concentrating on the alien-like structures.

A great shot on one of nature's most interesting flowers. You have captured it well.

Well, it looks more like a fun fair ride than an alien IMO, but it sure is pretty never the less!

It's spectacular. Never mind about the transitory insect!

Thanks for the comments.

@Andy, it certainly would have made for a trickier composition, as I had my hands full already perhaps just as well that I didn't spot the spider at the time.
