[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi friends,
This was shot at Butterfly park's campus in Bangalore.I found a number of bees on these small flowers,hence i decided to take atleast some snaps.But actually the bees did not settle on the flower but it was howering around..hence i could not get a perfect sharp picture of the bee,but anyway it was an experience to me.
Hope you all liked it.
Thank you,

Nice shot, well composed.

Hi Arjun,
Excellent try and it is nice to know that you have been trying different things as well. This is a good picture irrespective of the fact that the bee is not sharp. 10/10 for innovation :-)

Hi Arjun,
A very nice capture and nice concept. But the bee is out of focus. I know how difficult it is to capture a flying bee. Nice try better luck next time. I agree with Mr. Goutham very good innovation *****. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Arjun,
Good composition. Brilliant colours. TFS.

hi arjun,

nice shot. would a faster shutter speed help? reminded me of one of my own pictures taken at my home - a smaller bee sitting on the same flower. i'll post this tomorrow.

Hello Arjun,
Great in-flight capture of a bee over a blue flower. The bee is a little soft but the details show well and the blue flowers are very sharp. Fine composition and lighting.
Well done and TFS!
