    Ron, you shouldnt put a title explaining what it is. I had trouble understanding what it is and how big it is so it makes it very very interesting. It looks like flowers from other galaxy (avatar). Ive never seen anything like it before.

    Thanks guys.

    I played around with different apertures & focus & settled on the centre/near focus rather than my usual perimeter focus.

    Excellent focus placement. Nice small bug on there too. It's often difficult to get the depth of field placed just right on close-ups like this. I'm familiar with leeks and chives and onions and garlic of all types, and this leek head is really well-done. A few years back I spent a lot of time shooting chives...

    ...it was not that long ago that many digital camera sensors had some problems rendering purple and lavender plant hues...not so today.
