Seems you weren't alone in your 'enjoyment' of summer as many of my UK friends had the same complaint. Love the many tones of blue captured in your fine macro. Hope you will post more of your lovely photography.
Thank you for the kind remarks.
After struggling with an old, cheap film camera for years (plus the 'improvements' made by processors), it's wonderful to have a camera that can capture the colours I see!
It'll focus quite close (this shot didn't actually need macro mode).
