Solitary (2) - revisited:

I love the warmth of this image. And shooting at f-2.8 the yellow center of the bloom is sharp with the outer white pedals slightly out of focus - and then, fade to black.

So, tell me; what do you think of the Sigma 150 macro?

Thanks Leon, well what I think of the Sigma 150mm macro it's "VERY GOOD..."
It's a much better lens in approaching small insects without scaring them away than the ED50mm macro I have..
As also the the shooting with fully open aperture as you see in this image is no problem...
For more detail you can have a look at this image "Rose"
