Competition

By CaroleS
Osteospermum Serenity Peach Magic. As the flowers mature they change colour, so these two flowers are on the same plant, one has just been out longer than the other. I thought they looked as though they were fighting for the spotlight, especially with the little water droplets adding a bit of sparkle. Just me being fanciful!!

Thank you for recent comments on my Burnet moth, I have managed some fairly standard butterfly shots which I will try out on you at some point!

Best wishes
Carole

Beautiful floral shot and presentation, Carole, and the water droplets do add that wee extra touch and sparkle: there are a number of flowers that change colour dramatically as they age and we have a rose in the garden that does just this although I have forgotten it's name.
