I have been trying to create a pleasing composition of a dog violet for many years and came across this one yesterday at Monk Haven. Taken just before the sun was dropped below the trees in the valley with a Nikon D810 hand-held, 60mm macro lens, F6.3, 1/640sec ISO 2000. The wide aperture created the shallow depth of depth directing the viewer to the veins that lead to the stamens. This is their purpose in guiding an insect to pollinate the flower. I hope you like it.
