The weather has been warm here in April. The delicate scent of the blossoming flowers and the sound of buzzing flies and bees fills the air ... I enjoy the photo walks in the spring time!
I had my point-and-shoot camera with me this time. I was taking a close-up picture of this pretty thisle, as a fly landed on it - Voila! The fly was hovering above the thisle quite some time, so I took a few more shots.

- Simple as that! The Photo Veils give a natural effect, creating a sense of depth to your images. I my opinion photo veils from the Botanical Collection are perfect for nature and flower photography - They blend softly to your photos, giving a delicate finishing touch.
