What is this beautiful flower? And how big is it in actuality? It looks quite large here, but when I look at the bug I wonder if it isn't smaller than it seems? (Am I asking too many questions?? ;-) Very pretty photo.

That's one heifer.

Cool capture, Polona.

Bearded Critic said...

Ditto Matt. Quite large and stalker-ish.

Good shot, Polona.

mb: i wish i knew the answers to your questions. i found this flower on a mountain pasture a couple of weeks ago and it's quite small (i'd say each blossom is under an inch in diameter). the bug is just a small fly.
sorry i can't give you more accurate answers...

matt and bearded: i don't get your bovine references, but thank you for your comments.

Thanks anyway, Polona. It's very pretty, whatever it is!
