Super shot Heather, I really like how the soft green branch frames the bee and pink flower. The colour variation in the background from sky to plant to wood is visually pleasing. Nicely captured Heather.

Thank you Debra. Too bad some of the blossoms were past their best but overall I was pretty happy with this shot.

Nice shot at those busy bees Heather. Good that you choose that background color tone. Greatly enhence the bee and its little pink flower.

Thanks Yves. I have a lot of planter pots on the deck this year and the bees are loving them.
