Looks like a settled and content hoverfly, Bill.
Bill Phillips: food and shelter from the wind!
That bee sure looks like he is about to move in for the night Bill....nice soft texture around the bottom of the shot....petersmile
Bill Phillips: a few seconds only and then he was off Peter
great capture of the bee. nice background
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ayush. It is a hover fly that pretends to be a wasp to deter predators!

Yes, a lovely flower picture - I like the background, too!

It looks like a Bellflower: incidentally 3/9/48 was the day I was born
Bill Phillips: Thank you for that. Easy date to remember 3rd September.
I like your shot very much.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mary, I'm very pleased you do
Nice one Bill.
Bill Phillips: Cheers Brian
A simple and elegant image...
Bill Phillips: Cheers Larry
I really like the softness in this and the colorful blur of the flowers in the foreground.
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Dawn
