Great shot - the Pasque Flowers(UK name) by themselves are excellent, but the bee adds that extra 'zing'. Great POV and DOF.

Cette photo en macro de ces crocus est superbe, la lumiere est parfaite en plus il y a cette petite fourmis en prime.
Merci et au revoir...JP

Interesting that these flowers are called Prairie Crocus, whereas crocuses in Europe are of an entirely different family. In Europe these would be regarded as a species of Pasque Flower (Pulsatilla Sp.)
Whatever the name this is a superb sharp shot with the hovering Honeybee a fine contribution to the composition.
Thanks for sharing this one.
Best wishes, Ivan

I haven't seen a crocus since I moved from the east coast. How beautiful - and the bee is a bonus! Lovely colors and wonderful details.

Hola Rick.- Gran calidad encuentro en este bella foto, son varios los principales componenetes que lleva tiempo observar y admirar para apreciar belleza Luis52.
what a charming image out of your archives - of prairie crocusses approached by a bee. And visited by an ant. On a windy day as it may be typical for the location and the time of the year.
Excellent colours, impressingly good details all over.
I also like that blade of grass crossing the blossoms in apparent motion of blown by the wind.
It even increases the very authentic and inviting touch of that image.
Great! Thank you, and best regards,

Nice touch that wee lil ant! Amazing clumps of pollen on that busy bee
It must be hopped up on mugs of Timmie's, eh!
Nice natural Springlike setting Rick, Tfs, Jay

they such lovely flowers and I never knew they groew wild in Alberta. I do grow them in my garden and they finally out after a wonderful warm weekend here in Ontario.
Lovely shot, the little bee in flight adds wonderful interest to the already perfect composition.
