Floral explosion

I seem to be a bit obsessed with close ups of nature at the moment. I need to get out more...

Any hints, tips, constructive criticism or comments are welcome and appreciated.

What an interesting shot and so well framed. it's difficult to get a lot of depth of field in closeups, but I don't feel the lack of it is actually a minus point here. It adds rather an impressionistic effect to it.

Beautiful ... has a 3D feel to it - as if it's coming out of the screen at me ... my eye is always attracted to orange, and you've certainly captured my attention with this one!

@Ron: Hi Ron, yes that's what I like about it too. Thanks for the comment.

Beautifully done. I, also, like the 3D look with the spikes rushing at us.
