Tradescantia - thanks Jacque!

Tradescantia - thanks Jacque! (Tradescantia virginiana (Spiderwort))

Took a few more as the light fades.
This was the best of the bunch - flicked the flash on for a few, & this one was the best.
With each solution comes a problem though. In this case it's the shadow on the bloom, especially the uppermost leaf.

Thanks.
I did some without flash, but I really liked the effect of the flash. I'll get a little more serious at the weekend & try different ISO settings etc.
