Close but no cigar

Tell us about a time things came this close to working out… but didn’t. What happened next? Would you like the chance to try again, or are you happy with how things eventually worked out?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us CLOSE.

For the daily prompt today I’ve taken the photographic approach with a few animals and a flower that I edited the colours of…yes the images have been in various posts over the last few months.  But not having the hard drive with all the photos readily accessible makes life slightly difficult for photos at the moment.
