Great shot. Definitely a winner.
I think everyone is putting their best shot into the Tamron Prize Challenge instead.
Cool looking bird, great shot.
The bee wasn't moving as fast as you would think. I had put out oranges to attract the birds. The oranges also attracted the bees that were hovering around. Actually, the bird was faster than the bee. I did not use Photoshop other than for brightness and contrast.
When I first saw this image I thought,"This is the winner". There's so much to look at and think about looking at this shot. I'll definitely look at trees with a new perspective.
