I hope that you like this. It was manual focused as the camera wouldn't pick up the stigma which I thought would look nice isolated.

I was trying to get photos of Bees but that didn't go too well. I got side tracked, as usual, and saw this flower. Any ideas what it is?

Excellent shot Matt.
If I might make a slight critisism, you focused on the top of the stigma, if you had focused on the base the top and bottom would have been in focus, then all you had to do is isolate the stigma and use gaussian blur on the rest. I hope this will help you.
As to the flower I am not sure.

It appears tp be a Hardy Geranium. Lovely colour. You captured some lovely shapes in this macro.

A brilliant piece of manual focusing! I really like the colours and shapes you've caught here. Well done!
