Summer bee

I hope you like this image I made this morning. I only have two fennel plants in my garden but they punch well above their weight when it comes to attracting insects. The only problem is that they are next to the house, giving me quite boring backgrounds of brick wall or white window frame. Time for some homemade textures.

I am horribly behind. It's just too much fun taking photos in the garden at the moment. I will try to do better!

    Beautiful! That's some pretty amazing texture work to create that glowing golden background and light and leave the bee so sharp and clear.

    Ok, this is awesome! You chose a perfect background, it tones perfectly with the fennel and looks like a bokehry extension of the plant itself! Faved!
