Flower Photo Competition 1 2013 : Entry Number 635

Judges Comment

The words intimate and private come to our minds when observing this photo. Partially because of the deep pink color but also because of the close-up. The paddles have a velvety and soft appearance. You almost get sucked into this blossom.
