I see a lot of butterflies and bees in the parterre by which it stops without fail though I sometimes go to Yoyogi-park to stroll. Especially, a lot of bees and butterflies come near to surroundings of this flower(Vicia cracca). Maybe, they like smell that this flower causes.

Hi Mikio,
very pleasent image, you got this bee in a very unusual composition. i like the diagonals of the stalks with beautiful flowers. though the bee is small in the frame overall it looks prominent. however I did a workshop with few changes. hope you don't mind. TFS.

Hello Mikio,

I like very much your photo. I like at it and feel that it is different from most of the photos from TN but I can not say why. I think it may be the interesting composition with the tilted lines of the plants. It is also possible to be from the very nice colors combination or from the inspired way of placing the main subject.
Anyhow I like your photo and hoping to have your permission I will place it to favorites.

Thank you for sharing,

I find this composition to be very good. A definite card or calender image.This one could be enlarged and make a beautiful matted wall image to.The soft tones and nicely worked contrast give it that print look.
