This is a remarquable macro shot dear, nice black background, and the flower looks like a jewel in a box. Well done indeed. Sharpeness is particularly remarquable.

Wendy the wee Scots Lass from United States

I love the tenderness of all that "beginning" energy in the light rising and awaiting time to burst forth! I would love to feel that much energy within..nice symbol. And that vital green of the stems...wowee

I love agapanthus and I must admit my favourite time isn´t the flowering but the buds coming out of their thin hood. This is the time between and it´s gorgeously litten!
