Many thanks for all the clicks and comments on my Aster yesterday.
I also photographed these yesterday morning - a complete contrast to the aster that stayed where it was placed WinkWinkWinkWink
These were being blown around in the park - so I took it on the action setting of my camera WinkWink
It was the twisting stems that caught my attention here. It was hand held, so I'm surprised with the amount of detail that was there.
Thanks for looking
Helen

Such a delicate but sharp impression of the scabious Helen . I really love it . We don't get many scabious round here as the soil is mostly acid. I have one growing in my garden though xx

Yes that was a Budlea my Peacock was feeding on but a dying one . cant think why it is struggling . Sorry about yours xxx
