This is one of those shots that comes out a million times better than you expected it to. The shot is one of the first shots I took with my new Canon 5D Mk II, and I was very satisfied with the results (somewhat justifying the immense price I paid for it).
The shot is of a very small flower which is very abundant on this mountain I was climbing - titled "Dog Mountain." Getting the background right was a bit tricky because there is a lot of distractions (other flowers, the sky, etc.) so it took some time to find a flower which (1) wasn't beat up by the strong winds hitting the mountain, and (2) was in a good position to take the shot.
