Taken at the University of Michigan’s Matthei Botanical Garden in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  This shot was taken about a month ago, back in early March.  Nikon D80, Nikkor 50mm, f/1.6, 1/800 sec, ISO 200, EV -0.3.

Sort of off my usual topic, but if you flip it around it also makes a great lock screen for my PC (the pic below).  In Windows 8, which is still in beta, the lock screen works sort of like the lock screen on a  smart phone — it shows you key things like calendar appointments coming up, how much battery you have left, unread messages, etc., without having to unlock the PC.  Cool!

This shot is of my Samsung Series 9 PC running the Windows 8 beta.  Taken with my Windows Phone (Samsung Focus).
