The photo was done in a botanical garden, and the insect remained alive.
The foreground flower is a Nerium oleander that I had brought with me from home.
I waited about 1 hour to achieve this particular pose.

How cool is this. Love the peek a boo pose and the use of the flowers for framing. Super shot!
Make your life spectacular!

The pose was worth the wait, the foreground is nicely done.
