    Beautiful, but much as I love Michaelmas daisies, they signal the end of summer for me 😦

      Well I am looking forward to mine flowering. I bought three types last September from the Picton Nursery and can’t wait to see them open, one or two purple buds emerging. I hope they attract some bees for my macro!

        The bees will visit for last supper 🐝 I won’t be around much for a week, take care x😀x

          How did you insert that bee? Have fun in Tavira – are you going with family or friends? Hope you have lots and lots of sun 🙂

          I phone 🌻 with my friend and yes I really need some sunshine!

          Oh, and make sure you pop back here on your return as Nymans is tomorrow!

          Of course I’ll visit my favourite people 😀

          Nah, wait until you get back home – just enjoy that sun, the beaches, the bars 🙂

  2. I reckon you carry insects around with you to pose on flowers. That bee is translucent, and I love the petal curls and their hints of fading summer. I also love what you’re doing with the new camera.

      Now there’s a thought 🙂
      Actually this is not sharp enough for me; the focus is on the petal curl and not the bee/wasp except for part of its wing. I shall keep on trying.
