[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have already posted this photo in treklens, but decided to share it here as well. It's my favorite photo thus far, and I believe it's my best effort at macros. Hope you all enjoy it.

I cropped, sharpened slightly, resized, framed and then cleaned up the noise with Neat Image.

Hi Joy,
Gorgous shot! The colours are fabulous, especially the well contrasting gold and purple. Good timing too, catching the bees as well! Very nice work!

Great colours and a well chosen point of view. As a nice bonus the bees are included with this lovely flower. Along some of the edges around the bee there seems to be some oversharpening though.

Hy Joy,
This is a very nice colors composition. The textures look so smooth so... flowerish.

The workers add a bonus to the picture.

Regards, Petru
