Nice work folks.

Brettania, Where did your very interesting blue flower go? Do you know what it was?
The asexual flowers resemble those of our wild viburnums in the US but they are white. I suppose it could be a Hydrangea.
Napo, I like the passing rose. It's a too often overlooked subject and has a different sort of beauty.

Hi Bard -- definitely a hydrangea and they come in a variety of colours but mainly that soft blue or white. The soil's acid/alkaline balance determines colour.

Found the pic in among some shots dating from some time ago and mistakely originally though it was one of mine. But I couldn't for the life of me remember where I had taken it. Then I looked in the Exif and that said pic was taken by an Alpha Sweet 100, and I have a 7D.

It was, I now recall, issued as a PR shot by Sony. It was taken with a 70-200 SSM which I have.

That left me red-faced and no option but to delete.
