Scabious Flower

By ColleenA
Good morning....
Thank you for your votes and comments and especially to Jukka (Kuvailija) for his UA, much appreciated.
This was captured in the Botanical gardens in Adelaide.
Have a nice day....its 40 degrees in Melbourne today, we are sweltering...when the wind blows it feels as if you are in a thermofan oven.

All three are wonderful images, Colleen.
Milimetre perfect focusing & beautiful colours.
A pleasant 24C in Nairobi, but a cool breeze at times - could you direct your thermofan oven this way please? Smile

Three beautiful images of this delightful wild flower, Colleen. Freezing cold here, getting darker by the minute, supposed to be a thunderstorm on the way Sad Carol

Lovely scabious images - a prolific flowering plant and one of my garden faves.
When the wind blows here it feels as though we are in the Arctic!! Lol!
Sounds like you are having a fab time. Smile

It always seems rather strange to comment 'nice background' but your backgrounds do set off your images so well. Three very fine shots Colleen! Smile

Three lovely shots, Colleen. Great use of dof. I'm a sucker for colour and, while each is lovely in its own way, I particularly like the pale green of the background against the lilac and burgundy in v1. Smile
