You are really sharp with your macros, Amelia. This certainly is a beautiful scion of the sun. Best regards. -Art

I did notice the little beetle dear Nick, and it was quite happy to sit and bask in the centre of these sun rays. Thank you for taking time to "blow it up" ;-)

Ciao, Amelia

Dear Art, thank for this great compliment. The coltsfoot epitomised the day for me - it was glorious wandering around in the hills and woods :))

Greetings, Amelia

Mira - I had to nudge him a bit - but he was so compliant ;-)

Thank you dear friend for looking at this very common flower, Amelia

Thank you Mira, you must see many of these in Serbia, but by now they will be beautiful fluffy seedheads :))
