TRIPTYCH - cosmos and friends

During those lock-down weeks, alongside daily walks, we were fortunate to be able to retreat to a garden. It offered a wonderful opportunity to hone skills using the macro lens.

I also found solace in growing things; things to eat and things to photograph! Undoubtedly through luck rather than skill, the flower Cosmos seemed to thrive. The tall beautiful open blooms grew profusely... and did the insects love them! Even as they died their beauty was transformed into a balletic grace; petals becoming as soft, delicate, linen voile.
