Dog Rose

A common plant of the summer hedgerows which concentrates the little heat from the sun on this overcast day and encourages insects to land and warm up, whilst probably pollinating the flower at the same time.

The bright, overcast sky was ideal for flower photography, but I wish I'd removed that discoloured leaf in the background!
