11/14/2011: This photo was part of the "Macro Flowers" feature in the Damn I Wish I'd Taken That!!! Blog. Thank you!
The largest Surinam powderpuff tree at South Coast Botanic Garden is blooming beautifully right now, and I was able to find this one bloom low enough that I could capture it with my macro lens. No fancy processing, minimal crop to square format. (Zuiko 50mm macro, f/11, 1/100 sec., ISO 250, open shade, handheld)
