TL friends, now these are the flowers from the same place where "bugs" were. Rather bugs were at the bottom in the pot of these flowers.

We'd rain the night before and very misty morning put such wonderful dews on this flower. I think it is from the Geranium family, and don't know the name.

I cropped out the rest of the distractions, dirt, bugs, etc, and just left the flowers on black BG.

Hope you'll like it. Thanks, Vandana

ps: For those who want to know those bugs from Bug-zilla's are one of the type of Lady Bugs.
