Loved the incoming bees in the shot above :) Have been trying out a new 17mm prime lens, enjoying it very much so far. You have been with me here many times in spring to see the tulip festival but unbelievably we've not been to Araluen Botanic Park in autumn before.. enchanting, magical, glorious colours of nature.. can you tell I was excited to be there :) So many butterflies and bees feasting companionably together. The mix of deciduous and evergreen planting along with the last of the summer/autumn roses and other flowers creates an even more stunning palette of reds, greens, yellow and orange, the prettiest of scenarios wherever you look. More about the history of Araluen Botanic Park here. Few more pics tomorrow, happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..
