the bugs and flowers looks excellent combination. nicely placed on the frame. tfs.

A great work of composition, Geoffrey ... The top of the photograph on highlights of these buds full of tips; and at the bottom of the abstract red and black colors of these bugs; on a perfect background blur.
Great job!!
