...you go out and find an insect to photograph. At least that is what I do, and I do need a break. Spring is here, the flowers are blooming and the insects are out.



Canon 1D Mark II N
Canon 100mm 2.8
1/250 sec @ f3.2
ISO 100
Cropped approximately 50%

I see a pinkish cast in this. Probably from the anthers in relation to the reflectivity of the blossoms and more pronounced on the wings of the bee itself, though the iridescence of the wings always seem to play havoc with the light at times with bees. I like the comp though but I would like to see a bit more space, just a little more, not much, at the top and while I am at it DOF is a bit shallow, you think? Background is nice and complimentary to both the bee and the blossoms and not busy, probably one of the only advantages to shallow DOF or at least that I know of but of course there could be others . Think However the image is bright, with some detail here and there and depicts the season well, with an amiable softness that I like. Did I miss anything? Think Laughing Very Happy
