Hello Anne
this is really marvellous. The attraction it offers the moment it is seen as a thumbnail. The diagonal composition and the splendid brightly presented subject is so awesome.
Well composed shot and exciting details.
Superb shot.

Liebe Anne,
ganz bezaubernd finde ich die zarten grauen Fäden der Fruchtstände von Anemonen im Kontrast zu der kraftvollen Farbigkeit jener lebenslustig ihre Flügel entfaltenden ruhenden Titania. Merveilleux!
Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüssen,
