Delicate bloom

Searching for mushrooms, this small, lone blue and yellow bloom caught my eye. The nibbled and browning leaves just made the flower more attractive. And it was the only one of its kind that I saw that day.

Good eye to notice this tiny blossom. I like the detail of the blossom. The setting for the shot is very interesting too.
