Purple Aster pollen gathering by Elorine Purple Aster pollen gathering by Elorine
Hehe, I got a bee on a flower! :p Yeah... I know... "big deal", huh? Still, I've always wanted to capture one of those and I finally did! :D

:hmm: I apologize for the little blur, but the bee was moving around, not at all willing to stand still for me for even 5 seconds, so I had to hurry. I did reduce noise and added an unsharp mask on the shot, so it's better than it was before... :aww: And I'm also sorry for cutting off the bit of flower to the left... Happened for the same reason as the blur... I had to be quick, lest I lost the bee, and I didn't have time to center my shot before taking it... Hehe. ;)

Thank you, I'm glad you like it. :aww: Yeah, the bee kept moving around, buzzing its way from flower to flower... and I kept trying to click before it left... I missed most of those times, but I got this one finally. :D Thanks for the :+fav: too. :)

i think the shot is really good even if its not centered. Actually it gives a nice effect, and there is an other flower under so it makes it ok for the non-centered thingy. As for the bluriness, its not that bad at all! This is a really nice shot, I know how hard it is to take good shots of moving things. Really good job on this :)

i love the colour! you can always crop it a bit if you really wanted to have the flower centered.

Yeah, I may try that. I'm just weird about chopping bits off things, lol. It may look okay with only part of the flower; I usually keep flowers whole, but since this one's already missing a bit, I suppose it wouldn't matter. :nod:
