The flaming yellow makes this more attractive, nice sharpness and TFS.

As the saying goes: Busy as a bee! They look very busy collecting food. Great use of the narrow dof. Good timing and capture with nice lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Bom dia Erwin,
Great use of prefentencial focus.
Pleasure to contemplate this image.

A lovely idea Erwin, of looking deep into the flower and seeing the bees busy about their work.
The shallow DoF enables us to see the fg bee in good sharpness, even to the pollen on her leg.
The flower offers pretty colours.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Great choice of DOF Erwinn,it appears those honey bees are far to engrossed in their work,to be concerned about your presence.
Perfect clarity on the foreground bee.The bees make for an interesting & vibrant composition.Well taken.


Beautiful colours, nice composition. A fun shot!

Hi Erwin, It is very nice capture of these honey bees with great sharpness and orange background. It is not easy to get such shot with such details especially they are deep inside the flowers. Well done, please take care not get bitten by those lovely honey bees. Thank very much
