I walked out in the garden this morning with the aim to take close-up pictures of these huge mushrooms that have been growing on a tree stump in our garden for the last week or so. After I was done with the mushrooms, I walked through the garden to see what else I could photograph. Everything was so pretty with the morning dew... I took pictures of leaves, flowers, bugs, slugs but finally settled my choice on this flower. I'm not sure why, but there is something I particularly like about this one. :)
Just came back to edit because I think I finally figured out why I like this shot so much. There is such a strong outline to the petals with the darker colour that it just makes the flower stand out so much. It just looks like it's been put there on the background.
