Ignorant me, as usual, I do not know the name of the flower or the insect...The insect loked too small to be a honey bee, butsure had a potent sting, 'coz my hand was pretty puffed up for a couple of days after this shot!

Hello goldy,

Good shot with a little dof in soft colours.

The flower looks on this one - Leucanthemum vulgare.

Hello Goldy,
This is an artistic presentation of white Composite flowers in the daisy family and on a couple of those are insects, the nearest one being a species of hoverfly, which is not the cause of the sting in your hand.
The composition and presentation is pleasing to view.
Regards, Ivan

Hi Goldy. A very nice soft pastle picture of the wild flower. i do like the natural colours and the DOF. well done TFS.

It is more than likely some sort of wild daisy Goldy....there are so many...I have one absolutely beautiful shot but a rural fence gets too much in the image...and now this has your special signature of art on it...almost a softening...or purposely soft focus yet not enough to bother the eye but indeed to make it dynamically better.

Hi Goldy, beutiful daisies and lovely hoverfly, good colors, may be better with more DOF, have a good week, ciao Silvio

Hello Goldy,

I think the composition and artistic arrangement of your shot is lovely; it is like a painting. But, I do think that at least one flower should have a sharp focus.
I seem to be out of line with everyone else, my friend, but can only express my own opinion.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Goldy,

Must be some type of daisy and they are very pretty. Wonder what bit you - no idea if it was smaller than a bee. Could it have been a spider? They can be wicked. I like the soft colors - looks like a pastel painting.


Hi Goldy,
A little soft but I like the composition. Very well composed and captured these beautiful flowers with the hoverfly. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Bellissima presentazione di margherite con un'interpretazione artistica per i toni delicati e per la sfocatura selettiva, belli i colori e lo sfondo. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hello Goldy,
Thanks for your comments on my pic. Goldy this is as said by HP too soft. may be you are trying different methods? But compo is too good. Can u pls post camera info? Ganesh

Ivan is right, Goldy. This is some flower of the Daisy family.
You have seen the cluster of these flowers very well and captured it fairly well even though the focus is not all that sharp.
Keep working on new themes and I am sure you would do better each passing day.
TFS and all the best.
