This is one of my favorite flower shots. I particularly like this one because it's shot so close to the ground that you get the feel of walking on the path. I also really like the spectrum of colors in this photo. While the focus on the reddish orange flowers is in the middle, there's great flow from the yellow ones in the foreground, all the way to the two shades of purple in the background.
I took this picture at the Acton Arboretum in Massachusetts using an old little 49 mm lens at a close focus. More specifically at the flower and insect garden. You can't see any in this picture, but this garden is absolutely alive with insects, primarily different types of bees and butterflies.
