Whats really cool in this image is the fact that if you look closely you can see a casualty on the petal of the flower, a fallen bug who lies there in an almost comical way which looks like it flew right on in and went splat onto the flower…..

  1. Beautiful capture, and interesting story.

    But I think it looks like a nymph of some sort, As a nymph it crawled up the stem of the flower, to start the transformation. So the insect has left the building so to speak :-).
