Hello Ana,
A nice macro of a species of Bee (not Hornet, that is a type of wasp), sharp and well composed on the yellow flower with nice natural colours.
Thanks and have a nice weekend,

Ciao Ana, lovely busy bee on a beautiful flower, fine details, wonderful natural colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Ana,
What can I say about this masterpiece.....
Amazing...wonderful...Lovey composition with a superb yellow flower.
Brilliant colors and very, very sharp details.
The dept of field is fantastic. Excellent contrast against the green background.
Indeed George made a splendid workshop using Photoshop...no doubt the skills of George are great. But I like your image and I am convinced you make fantastic steps in macro photography.

Olà Ana!
What a great macro! Very good POV.
Beautiful natural colours and superb details of the insect!!..reflections on the wing are fantastic!
Very well done my friend: brava.

P.S. You are right this photo looks like the mine. May be my flower better, but your insect is much better of mine, certainly!

Hello Ana Ribeiro,
Wonderful composition capturing all the natural beauty of the scene. Your camera work brings us a wonderfully exposed and focused image, showing us amazing details and colours. I particularly like the pollen on the bee's back.

Hola Ana,
como en otras ocasiones me dejas desconcertado. No entiendo como no hace mucho te observábamos
el control de algunos colores y luces y ahora nos presentas unos trabajos que rozan la
perfección! Conseguiste unos parámetros casi perfectos em todos los aspectos, una foto fabulosa. Si hay algo que pueda mejorar quizá sea que le sobra un punto de brillo.
Buen Domingo: J. Ignasi.

Bon dimanche
