Hellebore with aphids

By oldgreyheron      
I took some close ups of the hellebores going to seed and then realised that I had more than just a flower going to seed!

I do like the rugged shape of the seeds as they develop.

Thanks for all your recent clicks and helpful observations, Mike

I really like this. I tend to like limited colour palettes in a shot like this, the subtlety appeals, and the details seem to be more apparent somehow.
