Good morning....
Thank you for your votes and comments and especially to Jukka (Kuvailija) for his UA, much appreciated.
This was captured in the Botanical gardens in Adelaide.
Have a nice day....its 40 degrees in Melbourne today, we are sweltering...when the wind blows it feels as if you are in a thermofan oven.

All three are wonderful images, Colleen.
Milimetre perfect focusing & beautiful colours.
A pleasant 24C in Nairobi, but a cool breeze at times - could you direct your thermofan oven this way please? Smile

It always seems rather strange to comment 'nice background' but your backgrounds do set off your images so well. Three very fine shots Colleen! Smile

Three lovely shots, Colleen. Great use of dof. I'm a sucker for colour and, while each is lovely in its own way, I particularly like the pale green of the background against the lilac and burgundy in v1. Smile
