Hi Jan,
For some reason it's uncommonly difficult to get really good and satisfactory presentations of this so common species but I think you've succeeeded unusually well here! It's a well-preserved specimen from a pleasant perspective, perfectly focused, rich and saturated colours without glare or dullness. Very nice to behold!

Very good macro-shot. Excellent colours and sharpness.
Also DOF is really very good. Thanks
