Super Bumblebee in flight coupled with a detailed capture of beautiful flowers and buds (?). Very nice and complimentary smooth green background. The flowers alone would have made a very nice image.

Thanks Mike! The flowers on this plant are really stunning, and I have been photographing them quite a bit. However, the bee was a nice bonus. They are so common around here they plant them at shopping center and mall parking lots in San Antonio.

All of the true words have already been said about this image.
Perfect shot!
But how does a person compose such a shot to get it so perfectly?
Angky.

Thank you Angky! I don't know other than wait, focus and shoot! It does take a cooperative bee.
