A perfect combination of color, light, and depth of field, with the lovely addition of a bee in the right place at exactly the right time!

Love all the red tones! I know how small those flowers are; I like the DOF with just that one flower and bud and peeking leaf (and the bee, of course) in focus.

What really sets this apart from the typical bee macro is the glorious salmon red color. Just fabulous. I'd love this on a HUGE canvas!! Good luck. 8
