Allium with Bee and green background

I would like to dedicate this photo to @myautofocuslife and @ozziehoffy

Both of you have opened my eyes to taking shots of insects on flowers with some of the incredible work you have posted in recent months.

I swapped this from my second album after getting some comments saying people prefered this one, because actually I do too!

Simply gorgeous, I Iove it.

Great colours !! Fabulous macro.
posted June 17th, 2012  
Very well done. Beautifully composed, super focus/dof, great colours. Is that a green card you have used as backdrop or were you fortunate enough to have a naturally smooth green background. Either way it is really good.

@yrhenwr I often use green card David, but in this occasion I used the shallow dof that my macro lens gives me and positioned myself to get the green wash from the plants behind the Allium.
posted June 17th, 2012  
Wow ... just WOW.

@seanoneill It's really well done - I tried somthing similar this morning and failed! This genre of photography takes me well out of my comfort zone!
