Happy Easter - flowers have always been symbolic of the Resurrection. I call this my Easter magnolia.

Waiting for mine to start opening so I can get some shots.. sigh... patience is a virtue, right? Outstanding image!! Why did you use that high ISO?... besides you can with the D700..

@amy: With a close-up, the slightest movement creates blur. There was an off and on breeze.
