Shrinking Violet

By CaroleS
This macro was taken on the coastal footpath several weeks ago. I think it is probably one of the Dog-violets by its shape. Tiny and easy to overlook and that is why I called this one 'Shrinking Violet'.

Best wishes - Carole

Excellent light exposure and composition Carole, I believe it is the common Dog Violet!
