Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS @ 400mm
Av mode
Pop-up flash on (my 430ex is in the shop)
LR & CS3

It was windy so I shot with a larger ap to get a faster SS. I also tried some at ISO 400 but they didn't come out too well. Selective sharpening was done on the front petals but I took it as far as I could without making them look screwy. Image was rotated slightly CW.

Great DOF and colors. I too like the low angle perspective.

Beautiful image and spectacular colours. I don't want to do you an injustice, as I know the quality of light is sometimes different in America but to me the colours do look just a little intense - in view of the other comments I suspect it is I who is out of tune.
