Planted and not

By oldgreyheron      
This was taken yesterday afternoon in a part of the garden planted with bedding verbena... beware of invaders but what a wonderful colour contrast between the dandelion and the scarlet verbena. Note the tiny black beetles (?) in the yellow flower head.

1/200s f9 ISO 100

Well Monday has passed... only four days to the weekend!

What a contrast indeed, Mike! Not just in colour but also in structure - the dandelion being all full and fluffy in the middle accenting the verbenal vortex next to it.

And I love 'visitors' in or on flowers Smile Except when they face the wrong way or move strangely just when you wanna click. Bah.
