Hi Ryszard,
Beautiful red flower of cactus. Nice light and an agreeable POV. Sharpness is impeccable and the blurred green BG suits.
Well done for this neat work.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

What a crisp shot with amazing contrast and clarity, Ryszard!

Great POV with amazing natural colors with POV and DOF.
The colors are natural and light is beautifully handled.
Well caught!
