#231-365 Perfect Alignment

Here is another Bee shot that I am proud of (also taken on the same day) I thought of trying to draw out the purple of the Lavender but I kept losing definition on the bee and that was what I thought of as being important, so all I have done is some minor light enhancement, as that maintained the bokeh as well.

I was first drawn to the perfect landing look when determining the theme title, and this seems spot on. I think I may have stepped over the line with my comments on the Big Event so I will keep things much shorter in future, so that you all know that I can "BEEHIVE" myself if I concentrate on it.

Boy, you've got excellent clarity in that little bee! That must have been tricky considering the shallow depth of field. How did you establish your focus point so well on the moving subject?

Awh, but your narratives were at least half of what drew us to your photos!! Although short narratives are fine, we enjoyed your detailed stories.

This is an awesome photo!! Grand capture of the bee about to settle on the flower. Great shot. And the bokeh isn't too bad either. :D

Emphasizing the bee is definitely the way to go.

I bee-lieve you captured a bee-utiful shot here. And I would not bee-little your wonderful narratives either - always entertaining and informative. Bee-sides, passion about something is always good.

DART said...

Super Shot! Are ya sure you don't have him hovering there on an invisible line of sorts? ; ) Fantastic work getting this one!

Clara said...

This is fantastic, Ron. A bee in the air is a very hard shot to make.

You should be very proud, this is perfect in case you needed to hear that again, both bee shots are great but this really couldn't be better!
