[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this beauty in asiatic part of Istanbul. It was a big garden with a wonderful view at Bosfor and great bridge joining european and asiatic parts of this amazing city.
We both with Greg were deep in love with this great place. This little, fluffy bee looked like lost in ths huge place.
But don't you think it's cute :-) ?

Looking at photos from Istanbul I always think about Sebnem, Ekrem and Cem!
Best regards for you with all my love :-)

Wooo Joanna, good one! He's a busy bee with all that pollen on his leg. Good POV looking up at him. He's so nice and sharp too. Yep, he does look cute. Thank you...

Yeah, I remember this place and all our lovely friends very well! Great capture against blue sky. Lovely summer colours and light. I miss this heat, place and time!

Hi Joanna,
what a wonderful POV. The bumble-bee seems to be sooooo big. The colours are so beautiful, thank you very much, I enjoyed it very much

Unique POV and maxim sharpness. You even can count the hair on the bee's body. Very enjoyable.
Regards, Petru

Hi Joanna,

Good to see you post again. The picture is nice and I like the low POV a lot. I would have cloned out the oof spots in the left and the sun-glints in the middle right. Other than that; good shot. Well done & TFS!

Wonderful, sunny bee you have captured.

Lovely details, colors, lighting and POV.

That is the magic of photography, it brings to mind wonderful people, moments shared and places visited...

You have shown the insect sharply and clearly.
Your composition is also nice. A great blend of colours.
