My prize tulip

My prize tulip

I just love this tulip, which I planted right before we got all that snow last year (and it still did well), but I had a terrible time getting a shot of it, between cramped quarters in the flowerbed, gigantic carpenter bees buzzing around me and poor light where this was situated.

This is magnificent! Great gardening and great photography. The 85 mm lens really shines in this image.
