Another flower I’m rather fond of today. After photographing them last year I bought some for my own garden, but I still love to photograph the beautiful Cyclamen patch at Compton Acres. It has a lower path on one side so you’re level with the ground and can get a lovely angle on them.

But today I bring you some macro shots I took in Bournemouth before I got so excited about the squirrels, ducks, gulls and pigeons 🙂 It was a damp morning,…… Continue reading Macro Droplet Heaven
