@Zaluska: Thanks very much !!
Certainly this is not as dramatic as yesterday's amazing post - nevertheless - an excellent composition with good detail. Keep 'em coming, Susan.

@Stephen Phillips: Thanks much Stephen...appreciate your opinion !!
Gorgeous! I have a shot of one of these as my computer background right now. They're such odd and wonderful flowers.

@john4jack: thank you !!
ps - my only advice on the polarizer is to get a good circular one (mine is a tiffen) and to use it often. I almost always have it on my lens when I'm shooting outside, but it really only makes a big difference on the days when the sky is amazing , but would come out overexposed if you didn't use the filter. It really enhances blues and greens the most.

@willow: i'll have to go dig mine out......i was confused when i bought it, cause it talked about how it should "move" when using on a telephoto lens.....I'll have to go back and see if I can figure it out again!!! thanks for the info!!!
All I can say is ....Beautiful.

@Lee: thanks much Lee !!!
Susan, I had left a comment earlier on this photo, but it is gone? I had written that I find this a hard flower to photograph, but you have captured it beautifully. Very beautiful pic!! : )

@Dawn: ok, maybe your brain is older than mine!!! I found a comment, that you find this flower hard to photograph, but it's on yesterday's post.....
maybe that's the one you were talking about??? If so, too funny!!!! And to be honest, they are not the easiest flowers to shoot, and i'm not even sure why...i was going to go outside, and go try again while the bush still has some "live" blooms, but right now, there is a wicked thunderstorm going on.......so i will have to wait awhile before i can try...hope there's still something left on the bush when the storm ends !! :)
