Nice composition and interesting processing.
The flower looks like it's gonna bite you

Very impressive macro/close-up. And nice to see that 55-300 PLM is suitable for this kind of masterpieces. You seem to know how to use it

Indeed, a very cool photo. The "almost B&W" works well.

Very interesting saturation settings. But, even aside from that, the image is excellent.

It's a Showy Milkweed. Pretty cool looking flowers for sure. Also milkweeds are the only plants in the world a Monarch butterfly will lay her eggs on.
