I've been playing in the garden with the macro lens, this last few days, between rain showers (the daisies were rather waterlogged) and trying to keep a record of the apple blossom as they flower; they are at the end of the sequence. Apologies to those who don't like bugs for the bluebottle in the middle, it just isn't as pretty as a bee. :lol:

The pics can be seen HERE, although the only ones I am really completely happy with are the dandelion clocks and the last cherry blossom (they should do ok in competition, if entered). :D

I believe the purple one you are referring to is an iris. ;)

Found this blossom in a patch of ajuga:
