Sorry - I don't think this picture can be used. Try taking another one of the same plant with the focus on the flower, maybe? It sometimes helps to take it a bit farther away. I have done this too... *Blush*

The focus is in the background so your camera is not focusing on the foreground with the bloom. If your camera has a macro setting (usually designated by a small flower) try that setting and carefully focus on the bloom until it locks focus. Sometimes you have to try from a further distance, if it's too close it may not be able to focus, it depends on your camera.
Plus, the nice thing about digital, you can take tons of shots, deleting what doesn't work! Works for me. Thumbs up

Sorry, i took another 10 pics and used all of my photography skills known,'that you could write on a piece of confetti with a 4 inch brush'.. the bloom has a waxy 'lip gloss' finish,.,.and is only the size of a squash ball-
lily freaks are not geeks!
