An interesting image Kostas. Made more so by the bee. Nicely done.
Make your life spectacular!

Sleep well in your bed, little bee!  How sweet, to be able to sleep inside a poppy.  :)

Excellent details, especially given the wind and having to hold the flower.

Wow- you did well to keep the bee undisturbed. A nicely textured shot with plenty to observe and admire.
