Very beautiful plant, and also nice insect. I had not seen the previous image either, It is fantastic too. It looks you have wonderful nature reserves in England. The composition is pleasant, a very fine work.

Both beetle and flowers are very nice Robert. I would crop the bottom off, whee there is a gap in the floweres, and some on the right. have a look=see. I'm sure it will enhance the compo.

Hermosa imagen Robert de una planta que ya nos hiciste conocer anteriormente.
Buena composicion, por la perspectiva elegida, el DOF adecuado y una coloracion atractiva.
Solo el fondo tal ver podría mejorar filtrándolo.
Interesante nota tambien.
Beautiful image Robert of a plant that already you made us know previously.
Good composition, by the chosen perspective, the suitable DOF and an attractive coloration.
Only the bottom so to see could improve filtering it.
Interesting note also.

Great shot Rob, I too would do some croppiung along the lines of Callie's suggestion but htat is a very minor niggle to this picture.
I hope this location remains hidden away as beauty like this should be protected. You captured this well and the colors are stunning.
Thanks for posting

Hi Robert glad to see you post. How did the competition go? Nice capture you got. Lovely orchids and the blood sucker adds a nice touch. Great detail and colours. TFS.
