Thanks Phil - it's always great to visit Wisley
Here's one not from Wisley - they did have loads of these there
but this one was in my garden - bit of a challenge in more than one way
I was experimenting with close ups and my Sigma 70 - 300
I also had a lot of wind to contend with! So timing and waiting for the right moment....
Captured this flower at Clumber park on a digital photography workshop, not sure what the flower is. First shot is cropped to try to improve composition second adds a bit of soft focus and the third is a very close crop & a bit of very crude removal of the adjacent petals behind the bee. The session was to practise improving my composition skills - this was the close up section quite a way to go yet, I was particularly rubbish at the landscape section so wont be posting any of those.
