Bee session

Japanese rose (Rosa rugosa).

It’s that stupid bee that’s unfocused, not me.

Macro Saturday. Windy and well identified flying objects all over the place.

1. Identify flowers – check!

2. Get the camera – check!

3. Get started – check!

4. Go back inside to insert battery – check!

5. Go back outside and check if neighbours are awake – check!

6. Be too lazy to go back in again to get tripod – check!

7. Dive wholeheartedly into the thorny shrub – check!

8. Glance nervously to see if neighbours are watching – check!

9. Chase bees with macro lens frantically – check!

10. Realize that you are more hungry than eager to take pictures – check!

11. Go back inside to have a sandwich – check!

Dark edit

Peonies from the summer house.

Old pic, new feeling. There are many ways to look at an image.

Last time I worked with this one I highlighted the fiery red-colour in the flower. By doing so the house almost disappeared and the flower looked huge.
