I saw this plant dripping wet after the rain and thought it worthy of a shot.
Only when I was processing it did I realise that the black sports are not seeds, but some sort of insect infestation.

Getting there! Thanks to you guys

Kill Kill Kill. I know they are all gods little creatures but they make a real mess of your flowers. I like the photo but not the bugs. Get the anti bug spray out.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

They don't appear to be eating it so just living there? Love the colours and the narrow dof works well.

Nice colours...the vermin are blackfly! But they are also ladybird food (and small birds also I think) so worth having unless they destroy your plants. I've always found water with washing up liquid gets rid of them well enough, and isn't an insecticide with unwanted collateral damage.
