The way that stem is so bent this flower was really chasing the light, a great shot Kate. - Gary

Good picture, Kate.
I thought it might be a type of Cosmos but I'm not going to guess because I'm bound to be wrong!

Stands out well Kate.
And surprised to hear Avon is still on the go.
I have not had an Avon girl knocking on my door for years !!

I see Carol has ID'd it for you, Kate.
Doesn't whether it's coming or going, a bit like myself these days.
And it lovely shot it is.

Not only a beautiful composition but I also like that the colours of the fly are repeated in the colours of the inner part of the flower (don't know what that is called in English Wink). Smile

That is beautiful of my many favourite flowers, I have them growing here in a big pot, but don't know the name of them either... a lovely image with the critter as well.
