What I like of this image is the flower, of course, but there´s sometihng, as it could be a mirror, in the foreground so interesting, maybe that flower reflected, more or less...I like it!

Beautiful palette and treatment. 'bluebottle,' is that a flower over there. It's a really irritating buzzing fly over here :)

@Lewis: Thnxs :)

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

Don't you get a rather large fly that always seems to start buzzing round the room if you are sitting quietly reading, just going to bed, or just getting up. It will often land on your book or even your face and is always too quick to be swatted and too noisy to ignore. If you recognise this (they tend to have an iridescent blue body) that's what we call a Bluebottle :)

@grouser: Ahá..now i understand..oh yes i know the little bastards,didn't knew the English word :)
(never trust google) From now on I only use cornflower ! Thanks for the explanation Mr. g.!
