I was watching the bees and dragonflies around these water lily’s for several hours, but it was very windy and I did not have a lot of success.

Hello Kathleen!
Wonderful shot.Details on flower,lighting,POV,flying bee,dark BG and composition are excellent.TFS...:-)

Hi Kathleen..
Your photo is very bautifull, theflower is nice and full of colours nuances. You used a long tele to capture the flower and the dragonflies, but you captured very well the flower itself and the bee above it. Well done.
I try a workshop to improve the bee visibility.

Very nice picture Kathleen! You have done a remarkable job.. Nice capture, sharp and the colours are great!



Hi Kathleen,
once again a wonderful water lily and this bee as a nice bonus. I like the pastel-colour and the POV to see this beauty from the side with the open leafs. A beautiful shot, thanks
