Compact & Beejou!

By KarenFB
Spotted in the local garden centre - so I only had my compact on me! Couldn't resist trying to capture it though, Bumble Bees are so pretty.

Fine evidence of why one should never go out without a camera to hand.

Hi Karen,

Nice capture, they do make good images with the pallen all over them.

Karen i'm not sure if you use "elements/PS etc" but if you do you can make this bee stand out a touch more.

I've posted a mod with just a couple of slight adjustments, see what you think.

Take care

Tricky little customers at the best of times Karen, love how you've captured the pollen dust on this speciman.

Great mono, but also liking yours with all the 'glitter' of pollen Karen
A good close up

A super close up Karen, it certainly pays to carry a compact camera around wherever you go
