Not geo-referenced but I wanted to share this image with everyone. :)
Let me be the first to say "Thanks for sharing." How did you pull this off?
Not only is it a rare stroke of luck to get the bee so perfectly, but the flowers are perfectly balanced within the frame of the picture. It's like you set up your tripod, and waited for the bee.
I bet the truth is that you were just quick and lucky, but wow; this is one heck of a shot!
Thanks so much Hank. You hit the nail on the head. Luck. I was "hunting" with an 18-200mm lens and Canon 500D closeup lens combo when I got lucky with this capture. So no tripod. And the depth of field is limited with this combo so rapid fire yielded this one. Many more were trashed but isn't that the beauty of digital. The composition on the fly takes some practice although I did crop this slightly.
As always your observations and comments are greatly appreciated.
Wonderful capture! Liviu

Jacek and Marita Thanks for your appreciation of this macro.
Bruce Always appreciate your insightful comments. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. :) Keep stalking 'em and you'll be rewarded.
Greetings to all, Tom
Very good macro! The colours are amazing!
Thanks Alfred I am glad you like it.
Great B shot, Tom! Also a nice interesting pose from the little bug. Usually I can only catch them when they have their backs turned. Like Bruce, I have yet to catch a really good bee.
Cheers Ryan. Patience and luck. The 2 things needed for macro shots of flying guys like this. :)
Great shot and great title Tom, :-)
I appreciate your remarks Séan. It's a lot of fun coming up with a title that will fit the image don't you think? :)
Cheers Tom, I do agree: 'every picture tells a story' but sometimes a few choice words can make it the complete job :-)
Fantastic macro Tom Y* for this wonderful photo! Best wishes Samantha
Thank you so much for the kind words and Y* selection Samantha. It is fun to see just what nature looks like close up. :)
All the best, Tom
