Clematis to be

I took this in our garden, in not great light and with a breeze that was constantly blowing. I'm trying to work out how to use this 105mm micro lens handheld, and this was one of my efforts from today.

1/320s f/16.0 at 105.0mm iso2000, handheld, full exif

I had not seen this. The detail is exquisite and the colors in the background offer a perfect foil for the just opening flower. This looks so real that I feel as if I could touch the bud and feel the furry surface. Extremely high quality overall!
