Shot this morning in my garden perched on the head of a coneflower. Thankfully the chill in the air kept it still while I was able to grab the camera and tripod. Nevertheless, I still had to composite many shots to cheat the shallow depth of field.

Well worth the work.
(I know, that's easy for me to say) Great results, at any rate.
