salut Mario

belle image de cette abeille et des jolies fleurs,
un excellent POV et cadrage de l'abeille dans l'image,
superbe densité des couleurs, j'aimes bien,
excellente netteté et détails, TFS


You've captured a fine mixture of floral and faunal elements here Mario, also a good example of mutualistic symbiosim in nature, whats more, a beautiful composition from an aesthetical viewpoint. TFS this my friend.

Hi Mario,

The flowers alone would make a beautiful picture but the wonderful little bee makes it exceptional. The bee is perfect in color, details, and textures. I love how we can see the magenta through the wings. A superb composition.

Bonsoir Mario,

Très belle composition. Excellent focus sur ce bourdon commun "américain" bombus impatiens. J'ai dû m'informer sur le net de quel bourdon il s'agissait :-), car pas commun ici. Superbes couleurs.
Bonne soirée,

Hi Mario. This is a very good close up of the Bee. You have sharp focusing and fine detail in the Bee with good use of the light on the wings. Stands out well on the bright flowers. well done TFS.

Hi Mario.
I like your very colourful an nice close-up of a fine scene. Excellent image of the insect surrounding by so wonderful flowers. I like composition of the image and rich smooth BG too. My best wishes and TFS.

Hallo Mario
I missed this posting, as you placed it just when we went on vacation. The detail as well as the focus is really clear. The texture on the body of the bee is sharp and obvious. The pink of the flower is almost overwhelming, but such a warm and sunny colour. One cannot help to feel joyful looking at this vivid and most friendly image. Very good presentation. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Bonjour Mario,

La prise de vue rapprochée permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du bourdon qui butine la fleur. L'insecte et la fleur sont clairs et précis. Le sujet est bien cadré. La lumière rehausse les couleurs. Bonne journée.
