It was bright overcast and breeze free while out with Patch today and perfect conditions for macro photography.

And I must confess to using a tripod on this one.

I hope you like this wild flower and thanks so much for looking.

Was Patch looking a bit puzzled wondering what you were doing with that funny looking three legged new pet of yours Gary ?
He would have run a mile if you hung up your heavy camera bag on the bottom of the centre column for a bit of added weight I would have imagined !!
Super shot here.
