Hi John
This photo really is a close up, in more than one way... ;-) Not only a paparazzi, but I suspect you paid them for posing on such a convenient background - wonderfully blurred greens complete with a contrasting pink (how suitably romantic!) flower. :-D
Ok, jokes aside, this is a wonderful nature shot, one we rarely see on TE as they've all seem to have been relegated to Trek Nature. The composition, sharpness and details (ok, I don't mean it THAT way...) all make for a great image.
I really do hope you are going to send it to some kind of competition, like BWPA.
Best wishes
Ps. I'm adding it to my favs of course.

Default To kasianowak: Sorry, but I think TN has gone!

Hi Kasia,

Thank you so much for your very kind words about this one! Like most wildlife photos, this one was an absolute fluke - I heard some buzzing in the flowers in the garden, took a look and then had plenty time to go into the house, grab my camera and stick on a macro lens and take some shots.

Yes, you're quite right - TrekNature would be the ideal place to have put this photo - but, sadly, TN now appears to have hit the buffers, become defunct, died, given up the ghost. I only had a very few pictures on TN but others like Luciano and Silvio were really very strong contributors to that site with their shared passion for photographing butterflies - they had hundreds of beautiful shots there and I feel very sad for them. Maybe TN will be resuscitated, who knows, but I also worry about TE itself as the technical support appears now to be non-existent.

Take care.

Kind Regards,
