Nigella or Love-in-a Mist with added arty fartyness Wink
I went for a dark painterly look here.
Always find these difficult to get a decent composition on...too many 'bits' !
The light is daylight from my North facing window aided by a lump of white card used as a reflector to really get the light on the centre of the flower head.
The Bee is a special friend of mine Wink

Thanks for taking the time to look/comment.
Janet xx

The darker b/g has helped make this lovely but difficult flower stand out so well.
Most images I've seen have not included the ends of those tendrils,
so I find this very satisfying.
