    Common snout made me smile. Hoverflies are unvalued compared to honeybees, so it’s good to see you celebrate this one. I love your penstemon too. I have tried them as their shades are so beautiful, but they didn’t survive the winter.

      Some penstemons are hardier than others. This one seems quite resilient, but I have lost others in the wet.

    Beautiful photo. The colours and contrast are so pleasant.

  5. So beautiful, Jude. The colours are amazing.

      It’s not my favourite colour, but it is a hardy penstemon, much hardier than others I have grown.

    Wonderful detail – so much more in your photograph than you would normally notice when you look at one. And the pink penstemon against the green gives it a lovely background.

      It’s always a joy to capture some little insect – you never quite know what you get (often just a blurry blob…)
