Hello Yiannis,
What a bright and colorful flower you have posted on this cold November day. Nice focus and shown in an attractive composition. Vivid yet natural colors and just the right amount of exposure.
We just had our first few flakes of snow this evening, but not enough to even stick to the ground. Great job!!
