#2 Red wild poppy




#3 cucumber beetle (LC55+Raynox250)




#4 gulf fritillary




#5 yellow crocosmia (I think)

Beautiful shots Saly - 1,3,4 are my faves but I think No.1 wins it for the composition and the colour. You continue to be an inspiration.

Thanks everyone! Again, the bright sun helped me! Of course, it was dreadfully hot....

Hard to choose an absolute fave but #4 does it for me too. Are these taken in the botanical gardens near your work?

Thanks Jeannie, Carol, banksy - yes, this was at my favorite Descanso Gardens near my work. I'm lucky to have this and the Los Angeles Arboretum close by. There is a 3rd one but they charge too much entrance fee...
