This was a magical discovery for me. I meant to return to these parameters but never did, and am happy to have been reminded of them again.

An Ethereal Flower

“Great people will always be mocked by those who
feel smaller than them. A lion does not flinch at laughter
coming from a hyena. A gorilla does not budge from a
banana thrown at it by a monkey.

A nightingale does not stop singing its beautiful song at
the intrusion of an annoying woodpecker. Whenever you
should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.

Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud,
it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its
growth or beauty.”

Another beautiful work! The subtle detail in this that makes it seem almost real is incredible. Steemit is lucky to have you and your content! :)

Thank you! Yes, those details are what make creating these difficult... It's easy to make a fractal flower, but to make it stand out among other fractal flowers, one needs to agonise over those details. Sorry for such a late reply!

Very cool. Keep making these and you will be famous on Steemit.

grin .. You think so? Hehe... One can only hope!

Ethereal is the perfect word for it. Just exquisite.

Thank you! <3 .. I'll definitely be doing more of these. And apologies for the late reply!

That is beautiful; and I love the colour combinations.
