An orange day lily in my north garden. The lillies are so pretty. I like how the background turned out on this one - on some monitors, you'll see other foliage in the background, but it's pretty dark because it's a macro, so the focus is up front. But in the background, the foliage kinda looks like weird microbes or cells or something.

I just watched a CBC David Suzuki special on the mites and various things that are around that we can't see. It was gross, but strangely compelling, and the background reminded me of it :) (Smile)

Professional looking macro. I like the comosition and the black backround. A backround should always be a very simple and plain. So this works really well. A vignition hood would have given a great touch to this one : )
