Tigridia Pavonia (Mexican Shell flower or jockey’s cap)

Another of the series. I was lucky enough to capture the bee scrambling around in the cup of the flower.

Sighhh, Had the sheer joy of having a camera in my hands for all of three months, before it met a tragic end against a concrete floor (lesson learnt – make sure the camera is properly clipped into the tripod. So, I’m posting a few of the better images taken and now I can but watch and comment and enjoy your new stuff….
