Ellen- Oh, wow, girl. This is some supervb macro work. Absolutely gorgeous. The composition is awesome. Love how you captured this little one hanging upside down getting at the nectar. Beautiful pink flowers. Love the gorgeous colors of the flowers, the bee, and the perfect color for the background. What I especially love is the amazig details that you bring out. Love how I see the pattern and lins in its wings. Stunning work my dear friend.
Annie and I hope your weekend will be a fun, enjoyable one for you. #8717685
