ABC Wednesday "Y"--buzzing in on Yellow!

"Y" is for "yellow," and I'm probably not alone with this connection. I had really just meant to take a photo of a field of gorgeous sunflowers and some individual ones, but when I clicked on this giant flower, I realized I'd also captured this little guy zooming in. I dedicate this post to my favorite artist, Vincent van Gogh.

What a fabulous picture - timing, light, simple background and that special visitor to the sunflower. Vincent would approve.

You’ve done very well to capture that! Well done!

Gary said...

Exceptional capture - you're either a very lucky or very skilled photographer - I expect the latter!

Brilliant Y

Always fun to catch some"bug" in the act :) I enjoy watching aircraft land and takeoff. Nicely done!

This is what we called excellent timing!!!

Great shot, bet Van Gogh would be proud of you too, Bibi!

Nice shot. Your sunflower looks to be about the same size as the one or two we have at the moment. The bee is nice to see.

Patty and I will be celebrating 53 years of marriage on July 12th. Think of it as a long-term relationship.

I have invited bloggers to offer suggestions on a gift for me to give Patty and the list would not be complete without your ideas.

What wonderful composition - and the bee makes it even better. I've just gotta say - yowza!

Blognote said...

You did so well here! A lovely picture!!

Petrea said...

Spectacular photo, Bibi! And bees are so precious right now. Do you have the Colony Collapse Disorder problem, or is that only in America?

Jelena said...

Wow, this is a great photograph... Just look at that busy little Bee!

Kudos.

That's a marvellous capture. Yellow was definitely a popular choice. As for Van Gogh it has to be his chair painting. Whenever in London and the galleries I make a beeline for this painting. Totally mesmerised by it.

A super image and capture, Bibi! What a lens you must have on your camera....some of your close-ups register amazing detail. Great choice for ABC. I agree, Vincent's the man.
