Just a great bee on a neat anemone. That white pollen is from the anemone itself. Really like the detail in the picture. This one’s straight out of the camera. When I shrunk it to post, I applied a little sharpening at first – but it looked absurd – especially on her face. Sometimes the camera itself just nails it. I especially like how the shape of the wings and the petals of the flower seem to play off of each other – almost an echo.
My favorite thing about this pic, though, is that it’s from today. Snowed yesterday here (among other things, weatherwise – Spring in the Rockies) and today was the first decent day in a while. For shooting bees, at least.
