Cotton tree bloom
We have a young cotton tree growing in our yard, and this is it's first flower. If you click on the discussion link you will see that I also posted a second picture of the same flower, taken a few hours later. It changed from creamy white to a pretty peach as the day drew to an end. The dying flower eventually turns a very deep pink.
This was taken with the 18-55mm kit lens. I get my new lens next weekend!! I'm so excited!!
