A flower and a bee
Votre printemps est pas mal plus hâtif que le nôtre cette année... Nous attendons encore de la neige dans les prochains jours alors cette photo fait du bien à voir! J'aime beaucoup cette composition, les excellents détails, teintes de couleurs et exposition. Salutations du pays de l'hiver sans fin :)

Great shot of these beautiful tiny flowers with the bee making the shot a masterpiece. Very impressive sharpness, details and colours with perfect light and exposure management. A fine DOF and a well chosen POV to catch this action moment. Superb composition. Kudos.

I don't know how your garden is, but there could also be wild flowers... Mine is full of them!
Nice picture, Valerie, the flower and the fine colours are welcome messengers for the spring. I also like the blurred background with the lines that contrast with the rounds of the flower.
Good of sharness with beautiful colors.
Composition are also good.
I should for myself the purple flower right and left under clone away.
These purple leading of from the subject.
You have also 2 subjects: The flower and the bee.
Better is one head subject.
Your bee has been now hidden below the photograph, while the flower are very big.
I hope you understand it what i mean.
I mentioned to you once before that purple is a very special colour to me, and that is why I'll send this lovely image right where it belongs. – To my theme "My purple obsession".
This is truly a very beautiful image and I must congratulate you on your standard of photography with this one. I think the sharpness of the picture and the details are just stunning. The vibrant and deep lavender colour is so beautiful, and it makes a great contrast with the blurred green on the background. Close-up work is well done and real sharp. Now that I am finished about all the beauty of this purple flower, I just want to add, that I like the bee too. Thanks for sharing and have a most enjoyable day.

looks like Spring has arrived in the Elsass region. Must be nice as we still are covered in snow here in Ontario.
Love this close up, so rich in colors. Beautiful composition and the DOF is right on.

What a nice plant and flower you have pictured. You managed to reflect all tiny details colour shades of every little flower and bee. Amazing DOF. All plant is in focus and BG is necly burred. Your picture is full of pleasant lights too and has superb composition. Bravo and kind regards.

I had to look twice at "date taken"..!
No bees here yet, I'm afraid, if it were they would freeze to death since this morning is the coldest so far this winter...
Good light and a fine composition, attractive colours in insect and flower!

I like the way you took good advantage of the vertical form to made this portrait composition.
And the insect at the bottom is so well detailed, plenty of fine details, that makes of this an excellent shot.
Felicitacions et merci du partage.

We still have snow all around; no flowers, no bees.
You are soooooo fortunate to start enjoying taking these lovely images.
THIS ONE IS PERFECT.
They were BOTH, the flower & the bee, "posing" for you.

sehr kräftiges, vitales Foto dieser Traubenhyanzinthe und ihrer Besucherin. Auch in den trockenen Wiesen am Rande von Wien wachsen viele dieser Traubenhyazinthen heuer besonders dicht. Der junge Frühling in all seiner Kraft ist in diesem Bild eindrucksvoll festgehalten!
Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,

this flower is very attractive and beautiful indeed. The clarity of both the bee and the purples are super sharp. The positioning ogf the bees also add challenge to the eyes. you managed the light very well making it very well seen in details and strong emphasis.
