Hallo Anita and Mike
I fancy this image. It is soft on the eye and is well presented. The yellow colour is not only striking but it also have summer, joy and lots of cheer written all over it. It is a beautiful macro, which I am glad you shared. Great composition and pleasant background. The contrast between the green and yellow is just great and fit each other like a hand fit a glove. It is my kind of photograph. Best regards.
