Flowers and Bugs

Here’s a selection of macro photos I took on the 20th May this year.

First the flowers – a couple of images of some daisy’s.  The first is a natural look, whereas in the second I used some Topaz effects to give it a warm sunny look.

Next a couple of flies – the first a hoverfly cleaning itself of pollen.
