In Bloom

It has been rainy and overcast over the last couple of weeks so I have been spending a lot of time doing strobe work. This is a shot of a "bird of paradise" flower that has been illuminated from below by a strobe. I like the colors and detail that were produced. For some reason every time I hear "Bird of Paradise" my brain immediately completes the line to the little Jimmy Dickens song,,, "fly up your nose"

 

Strobist Information: KEY- 580 EX II camera right from below. +3/4 EV power shot through snoot.
