Hoverfly and Poppy

By DalesLass
One from the garden.

I have tried many times to grow poppies in the flower border but they never come back. However, I get lots that simply appear in the most inappropriate places ~ such as right in the middle of the path! But they're so lovely I have to leave them be and we have to spend all our time walking around them.

Still the insects love us for it!

Thanks for looking,

Love the layered effect of hoverfly on the yellow into the lilac ,then the purple and back to pink.
Great cropping to get this composition.

A sharp hoverfly and lovely colour in the flower, Jude. I might have been inclined to shave a bit more of the green off the right side as well.
