This months theme is Flowers. This months theme is Flowers. We had a Flower Closeup theme a few months ago and now we are broadening that theme to just flowers, such as groups of flowers but a single flower also works. The difference is basically that with the ‘closeup’ theme the idea was more to get inside and capture a portion of the flower whereas now we want an entire flower or a set/group/bouquet of flowers.

RULES:
--Post up to 7 images but only one image/post
--Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
--Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners
--When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
--Include a title in the subject line
--Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
--Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
--WARNING Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists and may be periodically removed by the moderators without notice

The top images will be selected by the previous months winner and be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. The winning image will be added to the Macro Contest Winners Gallery
