Dan the man
Macabre but... I like the soft focus and the colour...V
Brian with an Eye
kind of balletic - danse macabre?
Terrific shot, Christine! Awesome idea! V~
This shot is really phenomenal to me. You have a great imagination.

Inhabituelle et originale photo d'insecte !!
original and fabulous..................V
I am, in general, so obsessed with small flying things that I am a little amazed I never commented on this one before. As a former beekeeper, I have a soft spot in my heart, not just for bees, but flying stinging things of all kinds. There is a sense of sadness here that is beautifully illustrated. zM
this is so great! the blur, texture and colour and the bee floating (?) and resting from its daily hard work.. amazing!
Hmm.. thought I'd commented on this one before! Love the shot, as has been said the color is wonderful.
Been looking for a long time at this shot. so many things to see.
hypnotic, disturbing, beautiful, compelling :))))
The Third Side
So, you've discovered the secret to a great cup of coffee.
Wow, just like in a dark golden suspended animation. Love it.
great! I like the way you paint with lenses...i agree with that
Beauty encased in amber. Wonderful!--Rene
Now that is a very very cool photo. Brilliant twist on insect macros - probably my favourite macro I've seen in week actually, but to call it a macro would be to undermine the creativity at work here in both the image and the title. There is such beauty (and tragedy) in this image of a life smaller than a fingernail...
Une étonnante photo et bien réalisée.
Stunning. One of my favorite of your photographs. ZM
unique in all aspects from subject to composition to the artistic
I'm feeling it...vote
this is what I love...
excellent capture! By the way... I did the last picture before she died..
very impressive, Christine. the light, the tone, the texture. Voted.
This picture is like a mirror: I recognize myself (after the daily comments to all new uploads on the fav list!).
Every breath of my wings to my very last is for you.As you fill the air of my soul with the richness of nectar.I cannot escape the sweetness of your spirit because it intoxicates me so.And I would rather drown in the ecstacy of your company than know of any other life.That being the truth, perhaps I stain your perfection with a sting of a shadow. A smudge against your gleaming goldness.As if I am a flaw imbedded in priceless ageless amber.Hanging there impossibly as a puppet silhouette that would be nothing, yes invisible, without your burning warmth.Your brilliance, which overwhelms.
This is how I felt in swimming class, when I tried to tread water!
C'est superbe, Christine. D'abord, il fallait la voir, cette guêpe (ou abeille? je confonds toujours) épuisée, en voie de mourir. Puis, la saisir sous cette eau, dans cet angle, avec le double reflet. La couleur, effet de la lumière, du traitement, ou les deux, est splendide.
My first impression was as the same as Ana...This resembles an Amber cushion for an exhausted creature. So special this one..very well done....L.
Death is final...but beauty is everlasting....One of your greatest. K
yes, there's the exhaustion, and i like JD's optimistic approach, but to me it mostly says resignation...the meltdown following a long hard struggle, the final 'i give up' when the energy runs out.
Exhaustion, mais en meme temps defiant la gravite. Les couleurs sont superbes, et le reflet sur l'eau est magique, dedoublant l'image de la guepe.
great! I like the way you paint with lenses...
I like the minimalizing of the dark areas, good composition too.. ~V~
Ana Carloto O'Shea
Ah.. very interesting..
You know that it seems that it's a wasp from billions of years ago and you caught her lying in somer sort of balming amber sleep. Exhaustion is good title for it.. I think we all had those kind of wasp days, without the dying part of course ;)
Unusual and fine shot Christine.
