Rose on Rose Hill

Another rose from Rose Hill in south Spokane. It was shot on that rainy day when I wound up scurrying around with the Nikon under my jacket, more or less. I finally retreated to the car as the rain picked up causing the Nikon and me to start getting wet.

Good evening, Don,
This rose looks brilliant. I like the small water droplets on the flower. The small fly or bee is also seen very well. They have done a good job. Dear greetings Christel

This rose is just sucking in the moisture. How beautiful the colors are. Could that be a beetle?
