Peeping Beauty, (flowers just opening)

Challenge #8 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
Show us flower buds JUST as they are starting to open, the centre of their blooms ALMOST visible, their beauty nearly ready to display itself to the world. The flower bud/buds should be still in their natural environment, not under studio lights. Insects or other small creatures may be present in your entry but must not dominate the picture. SIZE DOES MATTER: See below!
