Two lovely images in one here and you have featured one of my favourite flowers that grows wild near the Spanish property. Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving me the name of it. I call it the dayglo flower but now I have the official title.

Some might say that it lacks a bit of extra lighting probably due to a higher shutter speed, to me it is just fine Smile

Love the soft green of the flower and the bee so sharp.
Also like the sound of the olive trees growing in the meadow - where's my passport?
