Jings, just look at that bokeh! Corking spiky shot...

Love those sparkly bits...nice contrast to the prickly looking bits.

That hand reflector has come up trumps again.

Incredible lighting Phillip! It almost appears to have veins "popping" through the spiky pod! :)

I think it's a seed head of "Love in the Mist". Lovely sparkles.
