Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #209 – Surreal
Some insects can look pretty surreal…. here are just a small sample, that I did not have to photoshop at all.
Many thanks to this week’s Lens-artist guest host Tracy.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #207 – Seeing Double
This week Jez at Photos by Jez is hosting LAPC – Seeing Double. I too like reflections, and it is always fun trying to get a good frog reflection when the frogs return to our pond in the spring. I still haven’t managed the perfect photo – but I will keep trying.
But I have added another “double” from our recent trip to Wales – this sign hung above a shop and I thought it pretty cool.

Six on Saturday – 9th July 2022
So we have just returned from a trip to Wales to see family and friends. When in Wales it is always a joy to visit the botanic garden. We spent a lovely day there with family and friends and so I dedicate this Six on Saturday post to those special people. You know who you are.
The only problem is it is very hard to chose just six images. There was a beautiful display of numerous day lilies in many wonderful shades of yellow, orange and reds.
Next a calendula – almost metalic copper in colour found in the herb garden.
There were some stunning roses – I wish I could share the scent of this one.
In the tropical greenhouse there were some amazing pitcher plants.
I didn’t actually go into the domed greenhouse – too hot for me. But it looks amazing even from the outside.
And finally for now, I am not sure what this was – but I am guessing maybe some kind of salvia.
Thoroughly recommend a visit if you have not been. Thanks to The Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday.
