I like it a lot with these flowers and the butter smooth background. Colors combination is also very pleasing.

David, thank you for your kind words.

Bob, I now try to pay more attention to the color wheel.  So, thanks for noticing.

Peter, I agree with you that its name is cool.  I like a lot of the names of butterflies and moths.

francois, I try hard to get that creamy and buttery background full of beautiful colors.  On the two lenses I use most for these types of nature shots I finally figured out the settings to get the entire subject in focus (my normal preference) and that luscious and dreamy background.  For me, this type of photography is decorative art.  I want these images to look pretty.
