Boa noit Foozi,
Nice shot from white/yellow flower receiving a sharp bee. Good POV and colors.

Salam Foozi: This is a superb bee shot perched on this white flower. The petals are amazing and the shallow focus is dreamy. Diagonal placement of the bee fits nicely in a balanced framing. Best regards. Jusni

Bee in action you are lucky to capture it in such a wonderful pose.We can imagine the speed with which you must have captured it.very sharp and colorful capture.tfs

Salam Foozi,

Lovely shot here with beautiful details and sharpness on offer. Good DOF with interesting central composition with the bee in the frame. Great capture of light penetrating through the translucent wings of the bee, Although you have gone for slight under exposure here- it works well to preserve the highlights that normally OE white petals against darker inner flower structures. Wonder how this shot would have looked had you chosen Spot metering. May have revealed more details of the bee's eyes with some mild fill in flash. Just a suggestion. Nice shot though my friend and thank you fir sharing this wonderful shot. Have a great day!

dear Foozi,
this delicate gradation from white to yellow on petals is very graceful.
the figure of flower is very attractive for us and of course for this bee. the pretty little bee fits well it.
a little dark tone of colors is also fits this tender atmosphere very well.
thank you,

Hi Foozi

Hi Foozi,
great macro and beautiful tittle.I liked white frame also.Congratulations.Necla.

Hello Luis,

we are to be discussed here around our and other photos and to get suggestions and to exchange opinions.

I find to the picture something is simply absent certain.

If one sees against it your picture - Autum in Chelo - a difference like day and night


Bonjour Foozi.
Un bon cadrage qui met en valeur la mouche qui se trouve au centre de la fleur.
La douceur des couleurs est bien adaptée, mais supporterait encore un peu plus de luminosité.
Les détails sont aussi très bons et permettent une bonne observation.
Bonne journée.

Hi Foozi,

I don't know how I missed this nice macro!
I like th great white dahlia with a bee as a bonus :) The sharpness is crisp and the colors are perfect. The POV and DOF are very well done. the central part of the flower, is indeed interesting to have a kind of extra amount of light...superb.

very well done, my friend.

Hi Foozi

I likethe layered wedding cake appearnace of the white flower. Good shadow detail with excellent dof & sharpness. The central bee is a distinct bonus. Tfs!

Hello Foozi,

Excellent macro shot and nice composition.
Great clarity, sharpness, lightness and very natural colors.

Best regards,

P. S. Sorry, out of my point-budget today :( Hope you won't mind

Hi Foozi!
Wonderful macro,lovely soft colours and clarity,
fine lighting and details!Suitable title!
Regards and tfs

Hello Foozi,

The petals of the white flower are delightfully captured, showing shade, waxy textures and curled form, without any evidence of oe.
The insect, although having a lovely reflection on its wings, does seem a little underexposed. I suppose that's easy to do when trying to prevent oe on the petals.

Have a good w/e,
Bev :-)

Olá Foozi

Linda, linda macro...gosto das cores,
dos detalhes, da luz qué muito bonita.
O inseto bem no centro da flor ficou

HI Foozi
Not an easy one to get but you managed the flower well with its detailed petals being so sharp while the bee kept buzzing not co operating as well but you did great.

Avec l'insecte sur la fleur, quelle finesse, ce blan, le coeur jaune, grandiose macro, une emrveille.

Bravo et amitié


Ciao Foozui

It is a lovely fly and a beautiful photograph!
I notice the sought after silky-crisp texture in the wings, and the fine pattern is well reproduced...
A balanced composition, DoF spot on isolates the insect nicely!
Lovely flowers too...
