Pumpkin blossom

Pumpkin blossom
There I was, sitting outside this morning in the cool shade by the side of the house, when what did I spy but a beautiful curvy blossom. It took me a long time to set up the shot with my Joby Gorillapod, but it was worth it. My macro shots always come out better when I use a tripod.
Pioneer Woman's Soft & Faded as well as Totally Rad's Rusty Cage actions applied.
