The irises are almost gone. This one is looking a little ratty there just below the bee. Normally, I’ll crop a little closer to show the detail on the bee, but this one I couldn’t figure out how to crop and keep the iris shapes…which I really enjoy on this shot. So this one is a full frame shot. I like the counterpoint of the curve of the bee’s body in relationship to the curves of the irises, too. Plus bees on purple always look good. Looking at the tags, seems this is the first bee on a Dutch iris that I’ve posted to the site. Always fun for me to get a new (to the site) flower into the mix.
