unconventional flower

I like it.
thanks everyone.

I checked in yesterday about 12 hours after posting and saw no comments ... and I was like ... shoot, is this one a no-go? Thanks for kicking off the comments, @wyogirl ;)
The composition is excellent. As you stated, there is no space for the eye to breathe, but your use of the rule of thirds has negated that. The creamy blurred stem draws your eye in. And, if that isn't enough, the pistils on the flower are sharp against the bokeh. The purple is soft and beautiful.
