Museum Gardens - Part 3

How pretty these daisies were.
One of my favorite flowers has always been Gladioli. Next summer I am planning to plant a lot of them in my garden.
One never associates wasps with pollen gathering but there were almost as many wasp species as there were bees.
This one had its nose buried deep in the flowers.
A very pretty moth was hanging for dear life and the stalk of grass but as soon as I got near it took off.
I eventually managed to get a shot of it but it was very dark and with making the adjustment so you can see it, this pic did not turn out very well.
