Purple Flower

Found this little beauty next to the driveway of my apartment building today just around 6pm.  The flower sits nestled between two parts of the building, so the light was bounced in off the walls of my building, keeping out the harsh shadows you usually get at that time of the day.  I really like the background blur and the sharpness of the flower, even though this was shot full open on my new-to-me 70-200mm f/4L.  Canon 10D ~ 200mm ~ f/4.0 ~ 1/160s (handheld) ~ ISO 400.
