The second set of blues, taken late in the evening in my newly found 'blue patch'. It is an area where cistus grow, along with a lot of grass, hence the very distracting background in V.1, but I thought it worthy of an upload.

All very good. Like #1 best. You can even rotate it by 180 degree, giving another perspective.

V1and3 for me Carol, they are all beautifully captured though, so much detail and exposure just right. What is it that they are feeding on?

In V1 the plant seems to be saying come from any angle and drink the nectar!
All lovely images but V3 is just gorgeous - the plant is more the focus but the harmony
of color is wonderful. Absolutely love that.
