I've been a bit dormant on the photo front lately, but couldn't resist...

@Ulana - It's an essential part of the flower, so I didn't want to clone all or part of it out. I did reduce the brightness slightly with a brush. If I were to do another take, I would use stronger back light to raise the overall flower brightness, then that little part on the stem might not be such a problem.
