Default Oops! Most of a green bee

Clipped his wings. This isn't quite up to Lori's standards, but it's the only one of the six or so I shot of this guy that is in decent focus. In my defense, I was in a sensitive ecological area where humans are restricted to boardwalks along the bluffs. The insects, however, are free to move about as they wish. This guy mostly wished to be head down in a thistle bloom. Every other shot I got of him is just his hind end!

Maybe...but doesn't clipping the wing like that put the wing base exactly at the geometrical center? I like the balance of curves that the contrasting colors let you see.

Like it - lovely colours.
Must admit i'm always clipping wings in shots. As commented above it's either do that or get a poorer composition sometimes.

Beautiful colour combination Loeee. The crop is not really a problem!

All the best

I was thinking specifically of your dynamite green bee shots of a few weeks ago. In fact, I thought of them (or was it just one?) when I first spotted the green bee.
