Wow, I'm certainly into automotive photography, but I've never thought of anything like this!

Clever stuff, Todd.

Thanks Jer! The reflection kept getting into my shots of this bee, so I decided to try to make it part of the image.

Don't know how I missed this one first time around!

Sneaky title - it got me too!!!

But great image! Love the way the fine hairs of the bee and the plant are back-lit, yet the image is still so well-exposed. I would have sworn you must have used fill-in flash, but the EXIF data says "No". Whatever, a very successful capture.

Thanks K2 to K50! I just underexposed it to make sure I didn't blow out the reflection and brought up the shadows in PP. It is amazing the details these Pentax sensors capture when underexposed.
