The flowers are helping to frame the bee. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the bee and of the flowers. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Hi Ike, I also have no idea what flower it could be. Anyway, in December you have flowers and bees. And I saw today ladybug - the first sign that the spring is coming, today we had 15 C! Pleasant photo on the dark background.

Beautiful flower and a bee on it. Wonderful flower colors on dark backgrounds. Excellent depth of field.
בוקר טוב. יפה פרח ודבורה על זה. פרח צבעים נפלאים על רקע כהה. מעולה עומק השדה. דרישת שלום.

A wonderful close-up on the beautiful stem of this plant and the bee sipping its nectar, the image is very sharp and very well appreciate all the details, very good also the lighting that provides a beautiful contrast between the white and green with black background, which makes the image stand out more.
Also nice and elegant presentation format, with a framework that highlights the good work.
Have a nice weekend. Best regards.

I like the way you´ve focused the sharpness in the foreground on the flower and bee leaving the background a little bit blurry.Excellent quality of the photo with very good sharpness and vibrant colors.You captured this beautiful scene perfectly.
Have a nice day

Hi my dear Ike, sincere friend
Nice nature shot, your most skilled area.
Many thanks for your warm regards and sincere encouragement. We now have a good news that 2 aged lady and man was rescured 96 hour later after EQ.
Yes we never dispose HOPE and should get Spring like your posting.
Thanks for your sharing and have a good day,

I am no flower expert, alone I see very gladly flowers this is the soul of every people, sometimes also the smell makes a human being happy.
Sharpness and colors are pleasant for look at, certainly the black background.
Nice done, TFS.

I like it! Good use of the dof to darken the background. Nice framing. Good use of natural light. Well done, tfs.

I liked the black background that gave more contrast to the shapes of this bunch of flowers, the bee is nicely positioned. good light and framing. bees are suffering a lot around the world and are in risk in many places and without them we will stay without food. here in brazil european variety was matched with an african especie creating another, it was an accident and nowadays they are the main especie in brazil, sometimes they can kill some people, anyway they are less hit by the risks, are stronger than the pure european ones.

This is an excellent macro on these flowers, a bee is looking for nectar and doing its pollinisation work as well
Good presentation, sharpness and fine colors
Have a nice day

I have tried to catch one of these bees with my lens so many times but have not had this kind of success. Congratulations & TFS!
