260-365v4 – The Hoverfly and the New England Aster

Sorry about this, but it’s the New England Aster again, but I think you’ll agree, it is sufficiently different, with the addition of the hoverfly, to those that have gone before. Indeed, I’d say it was more like a much earlier shot of my last flower muse the echinacea. We

256-365v4 – Flooded.

Tuesday’s are often the hardest day to complete a daily photograph as I have work, tea and then straight out to Camera Club, it really doesn’t help when it absolutely pours down all day. I had planned (I do sometimes think ahead, although not often!) to photograph the New England

246-365v4 – New England Aster

Debbie has a new flower about to bloom to keep me entertained when I have nothing else to photograph. This is a New England aster (Aster novae-angliae) and as you will gather, it hasn’t bloomed just yet, but it’s on its way. We have a couple of the flower heads

Moth in Purple

240-365v4 Moth in Purple

There’s been a certain lack of energy and inspiration today (well, much of this week to be fair), so all you’re getting today is a moth with a rather vivid purple (plant pot) background 😉
