Very nice colours and composition Heather. The orange and yellow flowers are very striking with blue in the background. The slightly faded solar light really adds a nice touch as a secondary background element. Very pretty image.

Beautiful setting for this bee, Heather! The unopened flower on the right holds the eye in the scene and I love the blue colour in the background.

Thank you so much, Harold. That's my favorite solar light, it's such a nice shade of blue and the colour doesn't change on it.

Yves Langlois

Very joyful shot Heather. Vibrant colors. The blue stripe is just perfect for the yellow flowers. Great compo with the bee on a openned flower surrounded by some opening ones and a bud in the top right. Very well done., very artistic.

Thank you Yves, I always appreciate your feedback! I was wishing the solar light wasn't in the photo so the blue color from another solar light might have shown right across the background view. This shot was taken at dusk just as the solar lights were coming on and I think that it made the colors appear more vibrant too.
