I know convolvulus (Calystegia sepium) is classed as a weed by most people but, backlit yesterday evening in a hedgerow, it looked quite attractive.

Great lighting makes this a very pretty flower, even though it is a bit of a pest. Lovely shot.

Joline,
I find it a very good lens, it seems to give a lot more contrast than some lenses in my bag.

Steve

I like the lighting and the way it is enclosed in the undergrowth.
