Lovely photo – how do you get the dark background?
The black background is achieved with the use of the camera’s on-board flash. The camera settings would have been somewhere around f18, 1/200 second shutter speed an ISO100. Also, I may have taken the shot at night. However, you can get a black background in daylight using the same settings and the camera’s flash, but you might need an appature of f22 or above.
