Maybe not quite a circle but you get my drift.
I can't remember this flower's name - please let me know you experts.
Thanks to all for looking in at Bark & Sunflower. A big thank you to Fred for his generous User Award.
The brolly was from an Avon catalogue in case the girls want to know.

The way that stem is so bent this flower was really chasing the light, a great shot Kate. - Gary

Good picture, Kate.
I thought it might be a type of Cosmos but I'm not going to guess because I'm bound to be wrong!

A beautiful osteospermum, Kate, and I love both the curved stem and the tiny visitor, great spot and capture. Carol

Beautifully graceful lines in this. It looks a bit like an osteospermum to me.

Not only a beautiful composition but I also like that the colours of the fly are repeated in the colours of the inner part of the flower (don't know what that is called in English Wink). Smile
