This Zinnia was in my garden last month. It was one of the best blooms of the season so far and before the plants suffered a mildew attack which I'm now watching with sadness.

Almost 50 years ago when I was working as a floral designer my boss chewed me out because he said (in a very stern voice),
"Yellow and pink do not go together!" Your photo proves him wrong. What an absolutely stunning capture. Thumbs up

Wow, what kind of camera are you using Dinu? Any special lenses?
This is the best I could do with my new camera.

Thanks a lot for all the gardeners who have given this photo a thumbs up and also given acorns. I'm grateful for the gesture and appreciation. Thank You! I missed it, unfortunately, to visit ATP yesterday. So I could not see the banner myself as it appeared. Crying I'm so happy anyway. But is there any way I can get it with ATP on the side 'as it appeared'? Just for my record.
My camera is still the old Lumix FZ8. Yes, this shot was real close-up. Macro, no separate lens. I pushed a couple of petals down to make way for the camera lens to go closer. That about it. I'm so glad that it had come nicely when I saw it on my PC. Only a little later I learnt about this banner thing! So I chose that. It took some effort to fit it to the dimension required and I'm really happy so many people have liked. I knew no one would have gone INTO a zinnia!! So it is no surprise that it surprised many! Smiling

Maybe Dave has a way to get a screen shot of the banner as it appeared. @dave ?

When my banner (my first and so far my only banner) appeared, a friend in Oregon was kind enough to create a PDF of the screen so I could have it for my scrap book.
