Visitor to the Squash Blossom

I was photographing a frog on a zucchini leaf (photo to come) when this fly alit on the blossom, with the sun highlighting its shimmering colors along with the pollen it had been eating. Here's hoping through its efforts, we'll have some zucchini in the future.
fabulous light, colours and focus :)

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Thanks, Jackie! Junko's fine...we've been in touch pretty regularly and the problem is what many of us are feeling, lack of motivation and frustration with the way things are going here. She's healthy, but it's just hard living like this. I'm tagging her on this as well and did let her know you had asked about her.

I like your colour scheme. Great image Taffy. Good to hear Junko @jyokata is fine even if she's climbing the wall. Lots of company up that wall methinks. People here are all showing signs of lack of motivation, frustration and general crankiness and/or bewilderment. Hang in there folks, all this has to ease sometime.
