Hello Umar,
Aphodelus is a striking flower, it has its blossom actually in our Botanical Garden and it seems to be very attractive for insects. You have seen it in nature, what is even more interesting and I like the way you show it including the surroundings in the shot.
Kind regards

Ciao Umar. Great POV for the detailed handsome flower against the intrigant environment.
