Lagerstroemia, crape myrtle and ixora flowers

Welcome to another edition of Macro monday. Thanks to Lisa for hosting this wonderful event every monday. Ixora is still blooming profusely in this extreme heat. Butterflies and bee specially bumble bees love its blooms. I also saw in morning some hummingbirds but could not capture them.

Lagerstroemia with common name crape myrtle is the only tough beauty in this heat of june. Not only blooming profusely in as many colors as white, purple, pink, blue and many others but butterflies love it too. A typical plant of subcontinent very heat tolerant.

Lilac color flowers were just beautiful. The contrast of lilac with yellow pollens was awesome

The flower has actually very unique shape. They surround the pollens in such a different way. From a distance the flower shape is not very prominent. Only when you go near the flower and look closely then you see the real beauty.

Bees adore it. They reach deep into the flower in search of pollen. This one was a busy worker probably drunk in the pollen.
