Hello All,

After winter goes, the season of Spring spreads its magic allover with its colorful entry which not only brings charm and happiness in the hearts but also feelings!

This is also a time for romance for host insects of a country where Spring comes into existence, as they don't have to fly to different country for a honeymoon trip :)

I happened to confront a love-pair on a blazing red tulip who was enjoying a good time on it, but unfortunately I could take only a single picture as the love-pair felt disturbed by my presence and was bit skeptical in getting paparazzi all around :)

...just kidding!

Sometimes, I enjoy fantasize this way and hope some of you do too.

Thanks for taking your time for reading my story :)

Have a nice Sunday!



Technical aspects:

ISO=200, No changes except cropped and resized for TL.
The day was sunny and warm, and the picture was shot against the sunlight, in order to get the full glow of red tulip. There was a bit of wind blowing at that time I took this shot.

Goodnight Paras

Ha! your score is exquisite indeed the rascality of this duo insect
is charming and just enough light to capture this great shot.
The harmony of colors and contrast is set is exquisite.
Good evening. Regards.

Hi Paras...nice shot..you set up the composition very well with the red and green colors...well done.


Paras I am not sure which I enjoy more. Your lovely shot or your humorous note. Both are well done! Your lighting, color and detail is wonderful. And your blurred bg is fantastic. I am very envious. I had 3 tulips survive in my yard, and I have been unable to get a good shot of any of them...let alone with a happy insect posing. Great job. TFS, Lori
