Good morning, Hugh.
I do like the lighting here, side, almost to back, throwing up interesting highlights and shadows: I also like the inclusion of the bud, and the bee is a wee extra bonus. Nice one.

Beautiful tones and colour in this Dahlia and its bud. The lighting is excellent as is the detail. Like the crop you've made which concentrates the eye on the details of flower and bee so well.

Dahlias remind me of my Mum, she grew lots when I was a child. What an obliging little beast to land just there for you! Beautifully detailed close up capture Hugh.
