[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The main purpose was to test the performance of this controversial lens when the visitor arrived. It did not remain for long at all and seemed to be taking pollen, rather than nectar, in its symbiotic existence with the plants. Minimal PP subsequent to RAW processing and conversion and before size reduction and sharpening for uploading here.

Hello Neels
Beautiful photo with interesting composition, fantastic colours and very good sharpness.

Hello Neels,
Incredible sharp details and wonderful colors. Your Nikon D800 works great. It is a splendid flower with interesting colors.
Thanks for sharing!

hello Neels,
this photograph is beautiful. looks like a painting to me, i.e., more of 2D than 3D. can't say it's a virtue or a drawback, but overall the presentation is an eye-catcher.
good composition.
have a nice Sunday.

Hallo Neels,
Opvallende foto in heldere, duidelijke kleuren. Goede scherpte. Prima compositie keuze.

Obvious traces of over sharpening & noise as a result of heavy cropp Neels, despite the otherwise beautiful composition and lovely colors. Your main subject here is too small and as a result our attention is taken over the those gorgeous garden flowers, which ... by the way are prohibited for posting in this website. Please read the Treknature's terms of service!

Hello Neels,
Interesting presentation of these striking flowers. But I'm not so sure about the colors, are they quite close to reality? Difficult for me to say, I don't know them.
Kind regards
