Flight of the Bumblebee

I grabbed this snatched shot while sitting waiting for adders to show. Taken at distance, detail was never going to be great but I do think it works nicely, with a palpable feeling of sunshine and vibrant colour.

  1. It looks super, just the right second to catch it.

  2. I like the unusual angle and you're right the background particularly feels bright and springlike! (-:

    1. Hi Jenny. I can't claim any credit for the interesting angle – I was sitting on the ground waiting for adders and had to shot upwards. Thanks, as always, for your kind comments – Tim
