Contentment in cherry blossom

Spring macro


On Friday afternoon I spent a couple of happy hours rediscovering my macro ‘eye’ by photographing bees on cherry blossom.  The light was bright and unpromising but I found a spot in the shade of a cherry tree where I could capture something of the softness and delicacy of the blossom.  I am not sure who was happier, me or the bustling bees.

    • It seems like that because much of the really OOF area is in fact foreground. I do like using a wide aperture and throwing both the foreground and the background OOF, so we feel as though we are seeing the focal point though the under- or, here, over-growth.
