Agapanthus from Leeds Castle

By NDODS    
Good day to you all. "I trust that you have all had a great weekend ?"

Thank you all so very much for your most open and honest thought following yesterdays upload of my 'Coastal Composition' upload. It was really refreshing to read so many different comments and opinions on my image with a special mention going to Willie for his very well worked modifications.

Todays upload was captured whilst at Leeds Castle last week. It is a bloom which gas always fascinated me, and one which I have a wonderful fondness for, however at the time of capture I completely forgot its name, and had to ask Capto a fellow ePz member for the name of it...

Well I hope that you all have a great start to the week, for me who knows?

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Now I have just told Barbarahirst that her flower shot was the one on my table just now, but now think it is this one - or are they both the same flower, hmmmm.
Anyway cracking shot and like the inclusion of the bee. Well captured. Moira

Lovely colours

In answer to your question about the planes picture. This is from the air show web site

Patrouille Reva

Injecting a certain je ne sais quoi to the Bournemouth line-up this year was French display team the Patrouille Reva.

Comprising three Acroez aircraft, the display featured crossovers, barrel roles, triangle loop and a great heart formation they were a real crowd pleaser.

One of my top favourites too, Nathan and you've captured them and their little visitor so well. I keep trying but don't think I've ever been too happy with my results to date. My own Agapanthus are in full bloom at the moment, hanging with raindrops too.
