Come on in you two - I've stayed open for you... by vignouse

Come on in you two - I've stayed open for you...

... wandering around the garden in the early evening, I noticed that out of dozens of blooms, just this one Marguerite flower had remained open. When I looked closer I was amused to find that this flower had two (yes two!) little visitors.. I imagined what the flower might be saying...
Of course it could be like leaving a window open in a car and hoping the bug flies out. I know, I know I've been told I disagreeable. So is your marguerite our daisy or are they two different flowers. They do make lovely captures. Even with bugs.

Lovely. Sharp flower, and the background bokeh is nice and soft. The 24-70 stretched way out or the 70-200 close in?

Funny! Daisies are so pretty.
@joansmor they are the same flower

Looks like a popular drop in centre. Great focus.

@frankhymus Hi Frank - this is the Tamron 28-70mm at full stretch and stopped down by 2/3 of a stop: I reduced the saturation and luminance of the green channel somewhat so that the flower head really stands out.

Like your caption and the photo is great too!

@vignouse Thanks. Yes, I find I have to do that often with the Nikon cameras, drop the greens considerably with big leaf or grass backgrounds left in color.

@pittcj17 Hi Cindy - in the last month I have had challenges to show 'movement'. 'action' and 'something fast'... with the best will in the world, my creativity is about all used up on that front! I'll have another try if you really want me too, but I would much prefer to have a go at something completely different, if you don't mind.
