Another couple of images from the gardens at Buckland Abbey. V1 is the ubiquitous Cosmos, such a favourite subject of mine Wink. V2 is a Helenium. Why can't I get my bugs to turn round and face the camera? Anyone got any tips? Grin.

Thanks for calling and thanks for all your clicks and lovely comments on my Geranium uploads - hope today's offerings are to your liking too Smile.

Two great images, I love the delicate colours in V1 and the detail in V2, so they will both have to get half a vote eachWink. Well done Theresa.

V1 my favourite tonight Theresa, it has such lovely detail and the presentation is top class. V2 looks a little on the wild side - was it windy? Anyway I like them both.SmileSmile

Two super close ups here Theresa.
And if you use a pancake lens with a bit of jam on it,
I am sure the bugs will face your camera then !!

Both lovely captures Theresa. I like both but v2 is very special. Really like the focus in the center and the softness towards the edges. Nice bokeh in both.

I could not help you with bugs. My cat constantly turns his back on me when I'm trying to get a photo Sad

I particularly like V 1 with the bud set against the back of the open bloom.......and such very pretty delicate colouring: I'd feel pleased if I got a bug in any of my floral shots no matter which way it was facingWinkWink

Both are extremely good, Theresa, but v1 has to take the top prize today, such a beautifully delicate composition that should really be on a greetings card of some sort.
Gorgeous.

Two lovely images, beautifully captured and presented, for me it has to be V1 by a short head Smile

Both these stunning images are worthy of an upload by themselves. I love V2 but it is rather outshone by the brilliance and beauty of V1. It's a shame as V2 would be a real stunner as a separate upload. Great work, very well done!!
