Rose bud

While drinking my morning coffee I happened to spot a newly formed bud on one of my roses.  I grabbed my camera and took this photo without a tripod.  After several hours I downloaded the photo into the computer for processing into the rowellfloral website.  Shortly thereafter, I went back out to take another photo with the tripod.  I was surprised to find that the "bud" was no longer but had fully opened and the opportunity for another "bud" photo had passed.  In any event, what you see below is the hand held photo from the first shot.
