Hopefully voters will not say DNMC because it's inside the house and not on a leaf or flower "in the field". Anyway... I used the window light, and an off-camera flash with diffuser. PP was tone mapping, sharpening with Topaz and high pass filter, a little burning here and there and I forget what else.

I like the framing and the plane of focus is right there, but I'm not feeling it with the exposure or lighting.
