Wow! Thanks to everyone for all the comments and favourites!!
Its the first shot I've got in explore for nearly a couple of years now- got all the way to number 3... and as I write this it now seems to have dropped out completly?!
Haha oh well, don't think I'll ever understand the criteria they use for explore- still glad everyone enjoyed the shot :)
This was just a quick shot of the flowers in our back garden with my point and shoot. Bit of post editing on snapseed for iPad- loved the way the textures of the petals came out.
