The flower is gorgeous, and your capture is beautiful. Just the right colors and composition. Makes the image kink of dreamy. And the bee makes the whole thing more interesting.
One question and maybe nit - One of the reasons the image looks dreamy is the fact that it is soft. If this was intentional, IMO it worked. But if you were looking for sharpness something is a bit off - maybe the wind, slightly out of focus, or not sharpened enough. It would be great to know what lens you used, exposure settings, etc.
Don't dump it.....turn it into a watercolor. The colors in it are fabulous and the composition is perfect. That's the first thing I though of when I saw it was how good of a watercolor it would be! I'd almost be tempted to paint it myself, but darn, I'm outta paper!
Gale, the 80-400mm gets very "dreammy" sometimes at the far end, but this worked great for your composition here.
I can only imagine Lambros jumping for the bee... :-D that would be an interesting splash... ;-)
He would get the Bee and the Flower all in one mouth full.. That would be funny..
Don't wan't him to go in that body of water though... Some things in there Called Alligators bigger than he is.
Thank you for you comments, appreciated.
VR does alot for my shaky hands but when it is windy also, which I didn't take into account. I was to focused on getting that bee right where he was in flight, right on top of the lily, I forgot all about the wind to.
Not to mention, yes at the longest end, right at 400. I think it likes 380 best.
Besides I was creeping in grass just a little longer than I like not knowing what might be lurking there for me and squatting down. OHHHH ouch, I was kinda skittish :>))))
Not only was the wind blowing the flower back and forth, but up and down. DOH..
