This is a close-up view of a chrysanthemum flower taken using a macro
lens. The chrysanthemum was part of a flower competition in Dundee,
United Kingdom. I am enchanted by how these petals are arranged on
top of each other with such tenderness. The petals are like limbs
caressing softly with each other. Each petal has its own lovely texture and
feels delicate to the eyes. The deep rich colour adds intensity to this
image as well.
