A beautiful description for a beautiful image Yves. Mother Nature setting the scene, however, it is fantastic that you take the time to notice the opportunity and have the skills to capture it so passionately. Thanks for sharing the experience with us.

The passionate guy thank you for the very appreciated comments. Not important if Mother Nature do the setting or not. Believing it is so just help me taking the right place in my relation with the Natural world. :)

Very nice composition and focus on detail Yves. The colours are gorgeous and that bee adds the perfect focal point to a beautiful summer find.

Thank you very much Heather. With that kind of picture, it all about colours and compo. I was quite happy that the insect on the flower has the same colours than the flower.

Great storyline and you are so fortunate to take the time to smell the roses. This is a great shot with vivid yellow and soft greens via a soft DOF. The bee is a stellar addition. Well done

Yves Langlois

Thanks Clifford. I have reached the stage where time is out of the equation. I do smell a lot, and a lot better. Bee without its nice favorite flower is less interesting, and vice versa. For me the little miracle here is to have Mother Nature composed a picture like this one at the exact moment a walk by.

As long as a vision like this one will be, my 3 hrs walks in nature will stay my summer drug. Always put myself in the passenger seat and let Mother Nature drive me to the best available encounters. Expecting nothing and appreciating everything. So I sing to myself - What a wonderful life.
