Beautiful shot! Happy photo hunting :)
you always manage to inspire me to take more/better pics. i'm heading to the pond this weekend to take some duckie shots. thx for the silent encouraging me *wink* And, so glad you joined the big bang. my authority went from 29 to 200 in a week!!
Gorgeous - I love the colors!Happy Weekend.
That's a great take on the theme. The crocus is beautiful. I'll have to start checking for my crocuses to begin popping up. I think it's usually late February here when they arrive to remind me of spring. I hope you have a great weekend.
Very good work.
This yellow flower is really beautiful .Soon the spring!
great take on the theme and thats a really a great shot of the crocus :Dhave a great weekend !
I think we'll have to wait awhile for crosuses around here.Cheers
I'm just amazed at how warm it is there. It is a beautiful photo and the colors are so vibrant. Thank you for the touch of spring!
Great subject and shot. Have a nice weekend.
I think it's real interesting that you've thought of shooting the flower because it's pointing towards the narrow south facing garden! :)
Well before it came fully into bloom it was narrow. You must be off work with your toe, you have been posting up a storm here Jams.Have a great weekend.
The flower is lovely of course! But, your photography skills is amazing! Great shot! Thanks for sharing! :)
Great idea for something different. :)happy Weekend.
Interesting take on the theme and the crocus is just gorgeous!
Works for me...I like the photo!
Wow, I just love the color!
This is wonderful. My Mum would sure love to have this plant if she could get her hands on it. Great shot Jams :)
WOW that is an amazing flower! What a beautiful color. Happy Hunting.
We don't have crocus in Singapore. Does it come in different colours? They would look great for our Chinese New Year. Colour of Gold !!! It means prosperity! :)
It's a beautiful flower. I'm not sure if we have it here but I haven't seen one yet.
Great shot - wonderful macro picture - the black background makes it very colourful!
Thanks everyone. Aw Rhonda I hope you get some great shots!
Beautiful photo! :) That crocus is gorgeous. :) Wonderful colours!
Lovely. And the stamen is narrow.
Tee hee, jams... guess you went for an interpretation of this week's theme that was far from narrow, huh? ;b
Great shot, and I do love your interpretation. I stuck to the straight and narrow :)
Very beautifully macro photograph. Amazing colours. Marvellous blog with improbably posts.
Good grief, you already have 28 comments and thchick's post isn't up yet! hOW DID YOU DO THAT? Whoops. THat is a very roundabout way of photographing narrow! But a beautiful photo and how lovely to see crocuses opening up for the sun.
Our crocuses have been pretty flattened by hail and wind. I don't think any have been allowed to get to this beauty's standard.A
I love the colour (= And thanks for visiting me. Have fun!
mmmmmmmmmm, the coloration is great! gorgeous, as always. [hey? the stamin in the center of the blossom is narrow too, you know?]Drop by and view my photo hunt if you can find time! Love to have you leave me a comment. Happy weekend to you.

I have never see this color crocus, it is time for them to start peeping out of the cold ground.
Fabulous take on narrow - the stamen is narrow! And because of the narrow garden! :D
That's an unusual shot of a crocus, makes it look quite exotic. And the colours are gorgeous!
The colours in this shot are brilliant :-)
Stunning! Nice take on the theme.
Gorgeous flower! Happy hunting.
Now that is so beautiful...Excellent shot...Thanks for sharing....Mine is up too: Every Beat Of My Heart My Newphew's Scrap Place
beautiful as always! I would love to see your complete garden!It must be breathtaking!
Lovely pic. And crocuses do have very narrow stems! Hope you're having a good weekend, and that you're keeping warm.
Gorgeous! I can hardly wait for spring!Thanks for stopping by -- and have a great weekend. ;o)
The photo is beautiful though, and there is a narrow space between the top and the petals, which is likely where the bees have to fit through to get the nectar (if they are out gathering from crocuses).
And it is beautiful!
Beautiful shot! I love how the flower is isolated against the dark background - really makes the colors stand out! Thanks for the visit!
LOL Great take on the theme!
Lovely bloom. Love the effects on it -or isn't there?
it doesnt matter. :) have to say it's a gorgeous photo of a very gorgeous flower. :D
I'm amazed anything grows at this time of the year.
clever! :)thanks for the visit. :)
Great shot; I love macro shots of flowers. Oh, and nice stretch of the theme, too... LOL! Happy Sunday! :)
That is a great way to interpret the narrow. We would be very narrowminded to reject it. Thanks for stopping by.
