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

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.
