Natural beauty

Ok - possibly a boring week ahead, with three photos of the same flower - our first freezia of the season! It looked so beautiful and perfect that I just had to take photos of it - and my thanks to Jacqui for letting me cut it and bring it onto the operating table!

This is the classic shot, with a black background - two more to follow. Would be interested to know which is your favourite.
