Sunny Day
by Glenn David Thompson

The day is sunny...
Eager thoughts race through
my clouded mind.
Like a flock of geese
which just took flight:
none following the other,
each having their own sight.
I must set my agenda,
I have way too much to do...
The geese must follow one leader
or they will be lost too.
I settle, calm and plan my day;
just as they do their flight.
It's okay if I don't complete everything
As long as I manage it right.
The day is still sunny...
The geese head off in their "V";
and now, I smile looking back on my day
It was not just sunny, it was bright!

Absolut superb !!
Magnific macro si o lumina atat de buna ! Fotografia e foaaarte plina de viata iar descrierea ei,pe masura!
Toate cele bune!

E faina tare, ca de obicei, dar nu-mi place ca sta cu capu-n jos.
Am facut un ws

Dragă Mariana,
Nu ştiu, de a lăuda pe hard-albina de lucru atât de mare claritate. Baza de flori frumoase au întotdeauna să aştepte doar albine.
Ştiu că acest lucru nu este doar o imagine bună. Este foarte, prin urmare, Felicit bun work.

Bonjour Mariana.
Bonne netteté et belles couleurs pour animer cette superbe image macro.
Les détails sont magnifiques et permettent une bonne observation des détails.
Bonne journée.


Hello Mariana,

Great macro with excellent focus, light, contrast and sharpness!
Congratulations and TFS

(*) I did a WS and hope you don't mind!

Hello, Mariana -
Fantastic macro - I really like the steep angle of the flower, putting the bee at an almost vertical orientation, although he does not seem to care. Vibrant yellow looking great against the white petals. Very sharp details. Excellent.

Hi Mariana,

An excellent macro of the bee. I like the positioning and crop of the flower. One thing you might want to consider is cropping out the green leaf/blade in the upper right of the photo. It may just be me, but I think it adds a slight distraction.

Warm regards,

Buna ziua,
Va multumesc pentru multitudinea detaliilor in legatura cu Craciunita (acum stiu de ce a primit-o mama de Craciun :P). Dintr-o data a devenit mai interesanta floarea !
Poza dumneavoastra este extraordinara din toate punctele de vedere, este tipica venirii primaverii. Imi place.
O zi buna,
