Ain't I pretty?

As I said yesterday Lagos is rather colourful, let me make a correction it's my mothers garden that's rather colourful. I've never seen a bee in Nigeria before, only wasps and these annoying creatures. This image is for Asiko as he's a master at bugs on petals. This is one area of macro photography I've struggled with because I've never managed to capture a shot with the bug still. I think the flower here was just too beautiful for this fly that it allowed be photograph him.

I have a story to tell you tomorrow about my day today. It was the most embarrasing ever. TIll then happy preparations for the new year.
