That's a very pretty two tone dahlia that has attracted so much attention from the bees and overfills: excellent set of macro images, Graham.
Very good detail exactly where required.
I see something has taken a fancy to one of the petals however, it looking a bit chewed.
Doubt there'll be much photography today........the rain has already started over here on the dark side.
Many thanks for your comment on today's image.
