Blooms & buds

NOTE: I locked this photo down on 7-21-12 because it was being used on a German site, and appeared 2nd when Googling "Blooms & buds" - but with a link to someone else's Flickr site




Flowering quince

Georgia yard


Slight crop only - I don't run quince through Noiseware because I lose the fine detail of the petals.
