[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I followed this Bumble Bee around the garden for 20 minutes, and out of 54 shots I got one in focus. Good Lord they're fidgety. I like his furry orange butt and judging from the pollen sacks on his legs it's fat city in Beesville.

I'm still totally lost in Photoshop but finally figured out how to make a layer for the background
and play with the framing options. Bumped contrast 15%, cropped about 80% of the image ( shot at 480mm effective focal length 4 foot or so away.)
Slight color balance adjustments, mainly up green in shadows, and a little more red in midtones.

Bzzzzzzz 8^)
