Watch out for the sting

Taken at the Eden Project some years ago. A display set in what was an old lime quarry.

Wow! Any way to get rid of the poles over the insect's wing, and perhaps de-saturate the blue of the persons' clothes and the red of the horizontal thing? Love the sculpture over the diagonal lines of flowers and the background landscape fits very well, in my opinion.

Thank goodness bees don't get this large... an interesting manner in which to draw the attention of the visitors to this area to the flower display. Maybe we could borrow the sculpture for the summer for our English Gardens here in Winnipeg.

Thank you both and Maria I didn't notice the poles. I also used Jan's method from Virtual Photographer and used the romance effect instead of the transperancy.

You obviously had a better day than I did when I was there a few weeks ago! I snapped this insect too, but you have a better sky than mine!
Interesting shot Dennis!
