Double Take??

By jujupops
Good Afternoon All

Hope you are all keeping well, I have had a a nasty fluey type bug this week, and today is the first day I have felt relatively human! Grin Mind you, it has been raining hard all day here, which has been a perfect afternoon to catch up with your wonderful images and have totally enjoyed myself for the first time this week looking at them all Grin

Today's image was taken at Leeds Castle a the end of our awful summer! It was a particularly sunny day, a little windy and there were an awful lot of bees around these beautiful vibrant flowers (ashamed to say I don't know their name), I was so busy focussing on the flower at the front, that I didn't realise that there is a bee on the flower behind it, and the one behind that! Anyway, I hope you like it Grin

Thank you for your votes and comments on my last upload Into the ever they are always very much appreciated.

Have a great weekend, keep warm and healthy and thank you for looking Grin

Love Julie xx

Very attractive floral shot, Julie, the two blooms with their passengers set on the diagonal but with focus selectively concentrating on the f/g of the pair.

Lovely composition - I think the 2nd bee is what is more commonly referred to as serendipity. One of those lovely unlooked for surprises we sometimes get when we upload our photos and take a look at what the camera actually got (as opposed to what we thought we got).

Great shot.

So colourful and beautifully focused.

We've had snow, bitter winds, and lengthy power cut and now it's freezer outside. Think you got off lightly1 Grin

How lovely - the oof flower and bee is just perfect with the foreground flower and bee. I think it's a zinnia - a lovely old fashioned flower. Nicely taken Julie - and hope you're feeling better. Smile
