Thanks for the comments.

Michelle ... I resubmitted this because it didn't get an Editor's Pick the first time around, so thought I would try again.

Incredible capture...I was stunned to read it did not receive an EP the first time around. It is a winner in my book.

Great capture. I love the separation between the insect and the flower and the blurring of the wings.
