After an unexpected 10 night trip, I expected our Tithonia to be gone - instead, the 5 plants have created a 30' x 7' (?) wall, 7 or 8' tall!  No new butterflies today, so I thought I'd play with bumblebees.

Hand held, natural light.

If I was handy with artsy filters, (or at all artistically inclined myself,) I'd really be tempted to play with this pic.

Comments and suggestions always welcome.
Good light,
Craig

Why on earth would you want to play with this, Craig?  Its just beautiful as it is, and superbly captured - the little furry bumble and bloom complement each other perfectly for my tastes.  What a pleasure to view.  :)

Lovely image - I only wish the Tithonia seed I planted this spring had germinated :(.

Best bumble I've seen in a very long time! Just perfect on that wonderful flower. Frame it!! (And if you "play" with it, I hope I see it in P&DA transformed, though I agree with Carol- no need unless you want to make something quite different. )

Thanks, all, for the kind words (and the E.P!)
Good light,
Craig

Beautiful image with everything - colors, composition, sharpness, details and background - is optimal and working together to create a gorgeous image!
