Summer Days

One of my many Queen Anne’s lace shots with a bee from this past summer. I’m just going through them now and thought I’d post one as I have a little time.

Is this a composite: No

Nice one, Vanessa. I like the sliver of focus here with both foreground and background out of focus. Great shot of the little guy.

Thanks @David_Bostock for looking and your comments! I know it’s not a true macro as the bee isn’t too prominent. But I’m glad you like it!

Vanessa, I too like the sliver of focus you captured here, allowing the eye to go right to the bee. Nice angle of the flowers he is on too.

Hi Vanessa, what a nice angle you chose to shoot this…the bee appears to be climbing a flower hill! I would typically try to get more of the bee in my viewfinder, but I kind of like your choice of showing the wide expanse of the flower in relation to the bee. Looking at the enlargement, he is nice and sharp too so a fine job all around.

That is a great angle Vanessa and I also love the soft focus with the sharp details around the bee. Great photo and love the details in the bee
