What better place for a first date than the botanical gardens? I got lots of amazing shots that day but this is probably my favorite.

Editing was fairly simple and done in PSE5. Aside from contrast and some very minor color adjustments, I did USM twice. Once to bring out the fine details and then again to highlight the larger edges and increase contrast.

The top left corner is distracting. I think editing rules would have allowed cloning it out, but I'm not sure. Awesome capture! 9

Super shot, very hard to do BiF (Bee in Flight) not Bird in Flight :) and get both stop motion and sharp.
