Thanks Janson. I am not a so good flower person as well. But that one was so beautiful... My problem is always to ID it afterwards...

DANG, citizen. That's a mighty fine photograph! Not a flower power person myself, but this... This makes me want to reconsider my general fear and loathing of flowers and pollen! Great, great photo.
