My 6th photo in my quest to post 365 photographs in 365 days is also from the Rose Farm—as is the post from day 5.
This obliging honey bee continued its pollen collection detail while I took about ten shots with different f-stop settings and angle changes.
My objective was to blur out the background as much as possible while still keeping as much of the flower in focus as possible. Not an easy task given that the leaves in the background were situated very close to the focal plane of the flower. But I do like how the blurred light coming in through the gaps in the leaves has a beautiful golden glow.
