Am I the only person who saw the bee only on the third look at this incredible image?
What got to me first, was the way the sunflowers have so much depth and saturation. The whole texture of the image is wonderful. More than simple reportage, the composition, while perhaps not perfect, is near perfect, and works very well in square format. The colors work well together. The lighting, is superb. Everything is harmonious and pleasing.
And I said to myself... ya know, I hate photographing sunflowers. They're usually surrounded by angry bees.....
And then, after my next look. I looked again.
And there was the bee.
Absolutely fantastic stroke of serendipity.
