At least, I think that's what it is.

Very nice macro shot of the "Tulip", a red-black one, at that.

yes, it's a tulip. I have these in my garden too but not blooming yet. :sad:

still a lovely capture.

*whew* I struggled with the crop on this one. I liked the shadows, as well as the color, but there's a limit to how close I can get with the lens, and there was another tulip below it, and one to the right side. Kept recropping, knowing I wanted the shadows to be important, trying to figure out how to make it work. Thank you all for letting me know that I succeeded.
