Good morning....
Thank you yet again for all your votes and comments...
Have so many great fower images from the holiday so decided to upload one from Nottingham castle taken on a very windy cold, overcast and blustery day. Taken with my 40mm macro lens... No idea what its called so an ID would be great.
Have a lovely day...more rain again for us in Cape Town

Brilliant capture Colleen, dreamy, beautifully composed and love the square format. Note to self, must buy a 40mm 2.8 lens for close up work and 18 - 270mm for walkabout lens....but for now will have to make do with kit 18-55mm lens. Best regards Angela

A wonderfully soft composition; as you know my horticultural knowledge is second to non so I am pleased to be able to tell you that it's actually a flower Colleen Blush If you want the Latin name you'll have to wait until Carol [Caziwinkle] returns from holiday GrinGrinGrinGrin
