Thank you for your lovely message. Susie! I'm so glad I was able to catch those two blossoms of Gusto at their peak.
I had gone through 6 categories where I had entered photos and spotted a few of mine in the Runner ups, but it blew my mind to see this Iris photo got chosen as second in the Iris Category!
Thank you all. It's been a great chance to see some wonderful photos. All the best for next year!
