Beautiful colour, some people seem to think this kind of close up with stamen rather a little ‘rude’, do you?

I have added in this poem care of a commenter, it is not written by me I might add, but seems very fitting for the photo don’t you think?
An ode to a morning orchid
Pink petals part revealing hidden treasure within
Small bud exposed, the dampness of morning dew exploding like a drop of liquid diamond
Exoctic scent fills the air as the rich aroma bursts forth into wakefulness at the caress of dawn, soft and smooth as it kisses gently
My senses fill with you as I drink deeply of the wonder of all you are
My beautiful orchid of the morning glory
