Perfect Foofy Friday macro, Thad. The vivid tones and lighting are that special that I've wondered why it wasn't crowded with butterflies. If I were a butterfly, I wouldn't have missed this excellent opportunity, ☺ .
Very well done, my friend!

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

There's a few things that make this image for me, and in my humble opinion.

Colour contrasts, for one. And on this note, natural and vibrant.

And then, perhaps.. the deciding factor, which still has a technical side to it.. is the DOF employed and that of the perspective (composition).

Such that, the bloom's stalk is still discernible and the bloom does not appear to be simply floating in mid-air.

Nicely done, Thad.

And..

But, of course.. thank you for sharing this one with us.
