I used the Canon SX 10 IS for this shot. It has a super-macro feature that literally lets you get the lens right against your subject.

Basic editing for this: open, crop, auto smart-fix, USM, noise filter, add border and save for web.

Wonderful sweep of the petals pulling my eye into the flower's center. Like the light coming through the petals. Cute little fly, too, with great detail.
