And now for something completely different

And now for something completely different" Monty Python's Flying Circus

This post is a step away from my normal landscape photography into the world of still life and macro photography.  I shot this on a saturday afternoon in the house.  The daisy is backlit with the small softbox acting as the white background for the shot.  The photo was shot with a sigma 17-70 f2.8-4, while not a true macro len, has macro capability allowing a very short focal distance to the subject.  I used a piece of white card to bounce some light back onto the front of the flower.

I started with Python and will end with Python.  From one of my favourite comedy films Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

What's the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?

PS. the answer can be found here...... African or European?
