Awesome work girl. I love how yesterday you show us the beauty of these flowers when closed and now the beauty as they open up. You should get a gold for this just for the way you captured them bees who are moving in to enjoy them. The colors, the incredible sharpness of the details, the perfect lighting, what a master of the camera you are my friend.
So beautiful.
Have a most wonderful day. #9537698
