A beautiful detail.
Thank you Margaret.
Great macro work, Jude. It came out perfectly.
Best wishes, Pete. x
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.
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…)
