Re. Carol's comment.......not so sure the poor thing feeling dizzy, but from the slant of the b/g buildings I'd suggest perhaps it was yourself that had a touch of the off balance malady, or even that you pressed the shutter as you were about to topple over......WinkWinkWink.
Whatever, you still managed a very nice shot of the dahlia with it's visitor, although you really got things in a spin in V 2. And the flower's colour looks great against the blue of the sky.

Either the Dahlia plants were tall or you were grovelling in the dirt Graham SmileGrinGrin I get dizzy just looking intently at V1 - so V2 is a natural result - very well done ! I like the wave effect.

V2 is what things look like after a dram or three of Glenmorangie Graham.

A return to summer with your dahlia image and hoverfly - cheering up a dull November day.
Did you catch that sunset yesterday? I couldn't get out as my friend comes in for coffee and I sat and watched it unfold!!
I like your play with Motion blur tool? in V2.

I thought V1 was good Graham, but I love what you have done in V2 -swirling the image but maintaining the focus integrity of the hoverfly.
