Good Morning, All!

This is a shot which I took while I came across a sunflower blooming on a roadside and addition of bumblebee made this situation even interesting and lively.

I had the feeling as the bumblebee was inspecting in order to look for the health check of sunflower :) A colleague of bumblebee, another insect was already working hard while checking the petals (see top left corner of the picture) :) Therefore, I titled this work as: "Food Inspector on work".

DO you feel the same?

I hope you enjoy it.

Have a nice weekend,

another grt macro nature image Paras excellent details
tfs regards bryan

Hi Paras,
A very nice capture with good details and composition. You might want to adjust your levels a little, the colors look a little dull and hazy. In addition, but that I am not sure of, you could adjust the curves a little for more contrast.

Hello Paras,

Fabulous macro with a cute bee.
Beautiful details and colors.
Compliments for this intimate approach to the heart of this flower.
Beautiful day. Regards.

Hello Paras,

A fine title for a fine photograph.
Lovely composition with the 'food inspector' well positioned and the details sharp.
I agree with Niek about the colours. If you add a screen layer at 35% the colours are lifted without losing the contrast. Just try it.

My best wishes,
Bev :-)

HI Paras,
An ultra macro shot beyond expectations! Great photography, despite micro photography there's a wonderful composition with the core of this flower.
Great POV from above with the bee reclined backwards as if it's going round and round the heart of this flower for inspection, as you pointed out.
Great lighting and a considerable DOF.
Well done, my friend, excellent shot!
My best wishes,

Francis Xavier

Excellent macro Paras! Nice details here, very nice close crop, your sharpness on the bee is superb!

Hi Paras.

My Best Regards

dear Paras,
this circular formation of stamina is splendid,
and each shape of stamen looks quite artistic object,
of course the bee shows us cheerful figure in it and the scale for this macro world,
in my feeling, it is a fantastic park decorated with yellow artificial sculptures, but actually it is natural,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Bonjour Paras
Superbe close-up.Le POV de biais renforce l'effet psychédélique de ce coeur à l'incroyable géométrie.Excellents focus.Bravo Paras!Happy new year.Catherine
