Rhubarb and Custard

This is one of my hubbie's favourite flowers in the garden at the moment. It is a gorgeous tulip and I love its petals. Not sure this really does it justice and at times like this I wish I had a dslr with a lens that would blur the background more. Hey ho! Maybe one day!
Wow, how amazing is that! Truly beautiful, Andrina.

This is very pretty shot Andrina, and very pretty tulip - no wonder it's your husband's favourite! Love the sharp edges and nice focus.
I totally understand what you would like to achieve, and I know how it can be frustrating. I used to cry for a DSLR, then I cried for a new lens because with the old one I just couldn't achieve the deep DOF. Now I cry because I'd love to have a faster lens... well, it's a neverending game... But the best thing is that I used to capture best close-ups with my first point&shoot camera, 10 years old now... how frustrating is that?!
