September 30, 2012: This photo is one of the winners of the "September Member Free Photo Post Contest" in the group The Pinnacle of Photography. Thanks to the Admins and Moderators of the group for this honor!
The tight bud of a strawflower just beginning to open is viewed here against a background of blurred, fully open strawflowers that reminded me of eggs sunny side up! This image is straight from the camera, with no crop and just a bit of sharpening on the foreground flower bud. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 300mm [600mm in full-frame 35mm equivalent], f/5.6, 1/3200 sec., ISO 200, early afternoon sun, handheld)
