Good evening everyoneGrinGrin I Thought this one was pretty appropiate today being as the "War" is over............and I missed Rememberance Sunday on epz because I had no internet. An unusual looking poppy (not sure why it looks this way, I thought maybe it was fading or maybe just a different variety?) with a little visitor............... not sure what that is eitherTongueGrinGrin A hornet or a hoverfly? .................. Here I go again..................... David Bellamy eat your heart outWinkGrinGrin

A beautifully marked poppy captured in fine detail and filling the frame with colour: afraid I can't be sure of the ID of the visitor either, Diane, but many others will know.
