[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A look at which camera took my picture will astound anyone! It was just reflex action, camera speed and luck - all falling in place together! Much to my delight of course! And I hope it delights to TN viewers too much the same way I got delighted.

We all know how quick this bee is. This water lily is one of the most 'photogenic' of flowers according to me. Both are my favourites. To this picture, besides a bit of cropping, a little bit of contrast was increased and that was enough to bring up that 'flame' effect, not my intention though, but to improve visibility of other areas of the picture, esp. the bee.

Hello Dinu,
this is a very nice shot. Very good POV, colours and good sharpness. This is a very nice composition.
