What an apt name for this flower, Ellie, which I've never heard of! It DOES look like snakeskin. Unbelievable. Your composition/cropping is once again faultless.

Hi Ellie,

I really like the depth of field in this one. and, of course, the colours. The framing is nice too, with the one leaf reaching off to the edge of the frame.

Well composed. very cute.
Excellent capture. Perfect DOF. I like the off centre composition.
One of my favourite plants smile

Very loosely related smile But I agree with Ginnie about the looks. And haven't seen them as well.

Lovely composition. Have you tried shooting pictures in RAW?
Great composition!
Oh that is a beautiful plant! I like the almost checkered pattern and the color of it.This is a very nice picture.
