With Melissa's several other purchases that day, this tulip was one of my actual requests. You see, I don't delve into the yard the way my wife does, but every once in while, I find a flower that I think is just beautiful and has photograph potential.
The two-tone red and pink colors of the petals of this tulip are what created my interest in the flower. The edges where the two colors blend has a very intense red and really jumps out at you.
When I stopped and took this shot it looked as though the petals were being shy and almost afraid to open and show their beautiful insides.
