Can't decide if I like this or yesterday's better... the composition is nearly equal, which is why it's interesting to compare them... I think the landscape orientation is better for this particular subject because of the amount of horizontal edge detail, so I'll go with this one. I also like the negative space in the top-right corner here, good composition and cool flower too, I never knew that about them :)

Nice macro ryan, I love the contrast, I initally thought it was some type of feather.
