This has been a great year for Daisy or Annual Fleabane-Erigeron annuus and especially here in the yard. Everywhere locally really. It attracts a fair number of insects besides those wonderful hover flies.
We had rain most of the day yesterday and I decided to go out with the 7D Mark II and flash to see what I could find. Most of the insects were hiding from the rain but the flowers were enjoying the refreshment. This one in particular caught my attention.
I don’t often shoot flowers with flash because I prefer a more natural background although with a blur but there was a little breeze yesterday afternoon and I was hoping to catch some insect action which the flash is good for. I am pleased with how this turned out even with the black background.
