A dreamy Crocosmia

By ColleenA
Good morning all....a late start for me todayGrinGrinGrin
I have decided to take a break for a few days from my wildlife images, don't want to bore you....
While staying at Salford quays in August i spent some time capturing flowers in the beautiful gardens in front of the BBC offices. This is one of them
Have a nice day....

Very artistic, Colleen.
Looks like it's been on the Milo.

We don't get bored with your animals, Mrs Attenborough.

!!!!....we not tired of watching your shots of wildlife of Africa, Colleen ... I would say that I want to see your pictures of this life more and more! As for this macro, it was also taken very cool! Nice work, no doubt!Smile
In response to your comment, Colleen: This is Saratov, the city where I'm living now. This city has about one million inhabitants, and it located on the banks of a very large river - Volga. You can see this river at some of my photographs...
