Behold how great a matter a little fire kindleth! James 3:5

I didn't see any spectacular fireworks this year, except for a few tiny ones across the field from us that our neighbors set off which fizzled out before they reached the ground. The prettiest fireworks I saw today was inside the day lily...The sun was burning so brightly inside of this flower that I had to manually stop down my aperture to F/32 to do this macro shot. You can see how the intensity of the sun left behind the shadow of the stamens.

Thank you so much Thad Zajdowicz for the spotlight !!!
