Good Morning Trekkers,

I am the person who thinks of a story while taking a picture, even I worse more than that :)

In addition, I do fantasize the would-be situation while taking a picture. Yesterday, it was no exception!

I saw this tiny fly sitting on buttercup flower, in deep thoughts as if it had realized that "Ohh! Spring is already there, and it wasn't aware of the fact", and it is trying to tell out loud to its community friends so that they could make their most of this season :)
-> Well, you can see one of its friend climbing and trying to get to the "Spring point" :)

I think you all already know why I chose this title for my today's post :)

Thanks for your patience in reading my story!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Seasonal greetings,

Hi Paras,
Superb lighting on these buttercup flowers. Nice shallow focusing on the insect with a glorious blurred BG. Splendid contrast and a pleasant vertical format with a considerable DOF.
Well done for this neat work.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Paras
What an attractive image - very spring-like. Excellent DOF and colours too.
And an enjoyable story too! Your master fly has reached the pinnacle and hopefully the second one will make it too.
Thank you for making my night - it's been a joy to see your photo

Hallo Paras..
Primavara e aici!!
frumoasa imagine!! Caldura si lumina!!
Numai bine

Wonderful and absoluted lovely picture

Hello Paras,

I like this very much, with the sensitive use of narrow dof. The sharply focussed buttercup is strongly positioned, whilst its oof neighbours produce a stunningly, colourful b/g.

Have a good Sunday,
Bev :-)

Hi Paras,
I really like this one. Pure colours and perfect BG blurr. Not sure if I like to see the two flies.
Maybe the picture would even be more impressive with just the flowerers.

Beautiful Paras... so bright and fresh and "springy" ... well done. Love the colors of the BG .. soft yellows and greens. That fly stands out so well against those two colors.

Wonderful views with small flowers my friend Paras. wonderful colors in back ground. Perfect light and details. This is a wonderful composition, with very good contrast.
Best regards.

Bonjour Paras,
C'est vrai, ils sont envahissants, mais pris sous cet angle, ils ont un charme fou!!!
Et ce petit insecte prêt à se plonger dans la corolle de la fleur, aller, zou......

Hi Paras,

Beautiful shot. Wonderful colours, sharp details of the flower and the insects but for me it is the background and and your excellent use of the shallow DOF which makes the shot for me.



Wonderfully elegant image.I think the flies an intrusion,like a pimple on the nose of a beautiful face.But this is disregarding your story.Greetings Otto.

Hi,Paras. A very pleasant and aesthetically pretty photo of the buttercup, the flies and the story.Composition attractive and beautiful presentation.
Beautiful sharpness. Congratulations on this wonderful image.Cheers.

HI Paras, a perfect closeup of this buttercup flower with a guest on it. Excellently captured.
Regards Rose

Olá paras
...just perfect ..what a focus. lovely.
um abraço

Hi Paras
In this shot you had some lovely light and you captured it with beautiful composition specially the reflecting like mirror in the shallow depth which created so lovely effect but if you shot closely would have ruined the whole scene..I mean everything doesn't look good from close framing rather give some room as you exactly did in this shot.Bravo!
My Best Wishes
