Could that be the first thing you saw after waking up for your break of painting the house?
have you been let loose with the secateurs again. Let me guess you got scantily clad wood nymph to hold it in her teeth whilst you fumbled with your long exposure.It's not a montage or other Photoshop trickery. Just a straight shot from the camera.
What I am more interested in is how you managed such an even exposure against bright skies. I does not look fill flashed and it cant be a composite because it is strait from the camera...hmmm
No it certainly does not. Excellent work Rob you can usually spot fill a mile off.It doesn't look like flash, does it?
I don't know what to say, Rob. Other than... man, you are just crazy good.
Isn't it a clematis? (Gotta get me one of those.) Very pretty!
and, why, yes! I have learned something about photography in this thread - I did pay attention that there was fill flash on this - I can hardly believe it.

And now you should try the same shot with a bird directly above it. That is actually what I expected initially when I read the title of the thread. You might have to bury the camera for that one then
Lol..I was expecting to see a Blackbird but that would be too hard - very good view,imaginative too.
Well seeing as how I'm on another time zone, I am late to this party and find it has all been said - this is beautiful Rob shot and processed perfectly for the subject.
I too thought there was a conjuror's assistant stage left holding the stalk
And Katy my advice- plant those flowers right now, get out of the painting altogether
