A beautiful capture with marvelous details!
I even count the number of pollens falling from the stamina.
Great magenta colored diffused BG which gives perfect contrast to the stamina as well as pollens resting on it. Perfectly caught!
it is a shame that the picture doesn't accompany any (useful) note, why and for what purpose you took the capture, which make the picture more interesting. You posted a lot of wonderful shot on TL but you didn't deliver any critiques/comments till date. I would request you to consider my point, as we are here to learn.
Thank you again for this wonderful shot!
Wonderful colours and great detail in your macro!
PS - I hope you will find time to see my pictures... :)

The delicate core is captured with fine crisp details!
Well exposed in the pink parts, good details in the petals ...
The stamens are well defined and wonderful!
