Still using my Macro lens, thought i would take a shot of this Gebera. I never realised these were one of the Sunflower family. Well we have had Fog here all day again.

marvellous shot Mike, so crisply detailed with gorgeous colour. Ever thought that you should upgrade your status from beginner level.

With very best regards

Geoff
