I just can’t help it this time of year. The stamen of the common crocus is a photographic fascination for me. This one was growing in our driveway, popping out of the gravel.

Single JPG from the G10 first processed in Photoshop then upsampled and tonemapped in Photomatix, then back to Photoshop for some further adjustment.
