Great macro of the flower and its visitor.

93d?? If that like on the other scale where everything is all fouled up. 93d?? How can you even breathe in such heat? Thanks, I'll take the -3 with the wind chill. (Not for long, Lol)

You're pic turned out ok, even if it was nice out.

Gosh the pattern of the bug sort of matches the middle of the bloom! Superb.

of the flower look like an epic journey. :)
