Lifecycle by kylere Lifecycle by kylere
Shot at the Krohn Conservatory [link] and I am still amazed that I grabbed it. So I shrunk it down to 1600x1200 just in case anyone would want it for a desktop. I called it Lifecycle because I noticed that every stage of the Echinacea (not Daisy as pointed out by =somedrunkblackspoon ) is there, up to and including the pollination.

UMM WOW, ye gods!!! I am well honestly speechless, and if you knew me, that would amaze you. Thanks for all of you checking out my lucky capture of nature at it's best. I want you all to know that I grabbed a 1600x1200 section focused on the bee that I thought was nice also especially since you can see the pollen, you can see it at She Dreams in Digital.

Lifecycle by ~kylere is bloody gorgeous. The image size itself allows you to see all of the beautiful details which Michael has so wonderfully captured. ( Suggested by Sya and Featured by grubin )

Wow. I love the depth of field. The it's long enough to just see the other flowers in reasonable detail really completes the shot. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I usually hate bees but I think it definetely fits with your picture. A lot of flower and/or plant pictures seem surreal in some ways and to me, the fact that the bee is there, gives your picture a clearer sense of reality. I could be crazy, but I love the shot either way.

I really like echinaceas too... Thankyou for reminding me of their real name so I wasn't reduced to calling them "pink daisies". :XD:
It's so beautiful... I must :+fav: :heart:

Wow, thanks for the correction, my notes were off and I never noticed it, but then again I honestly expected ten pagevies and did not pay as much attention as I should have, it is a good lesson to never forget this can happen on DA.

I was lucky to get that clarity, hand holding camera, bee inches away, but it seemed like my pulse, the wind, the bee, the flower all just stopped, so that breathless I was able to snap the shot. Of course, the Bee in an act of defiance did waggle an antenna at me.

reminds me of an old cult film, Harold and Maude... "What kind of flower would you be?" "A daisy because they're all the same" "But look, this one is shorter and this one has lost a petal and this one has more leaves... The problem with this world is that people allow themselves to be treated like daisies when really they're all different" ... or something like that. Wonderful picture. I *heart* bees and flowers....
