Thanks everyone for encouragement. These are the pictures I took in the summer - I still have few to post until new flowers appear next spring.

Glad you went on with the experiments. Only now my chin hurts as it fell on the table. Beautiful, even stunningly so. The second shot shows the vulnarability of the flower very well and is my favorite here. Great work Alex!!

Simply stunning! Nature invented this phenomena to attract the bees to the flowers. Now I feel like one too! Very nice work. Print them big, frame them nice and get rich!

always on the need for improvement
