So clear,clean and crisp,as the fly gingerly makes his way around the petals!

Beautiful photo Mick, thank you.
The flower petals look like (stir-fry) beanshoots.

I like its foil, Mick - Shades of a template for a stained glass window, perhaps.

The Hoverfly is sometimes confused with the Wasp but it is quite harmless and is a beneficial insect

Evening prayer

Once more in the morn on the pitch they will snow...
Fifteen blood red roses swing low.
Pray they will bloom on their
Chariot sweet.
Pray they'll prevail in the Afrika heat.
