    A nice series Lynne. For me #'s 1, 3, 7, and 10 stand out from the rest.

      Thanks, 10 isn't even my fav wasp pic. This is from November, the last, cold, slow guy of 2018.

    Hi Lynne, these are truly beautiful 🙂 When it comes to my favorites, I'd say #3 and #10! The colors are mesmerizing.

    Tremendous shots, Lynne. Can't pick a fav-but if I must, it would be 3. How'd you do that one?

      Thanks Tom, it's a super macro… The flowers are new growth on a succulent, only 2-3mm in size. So the effect is from being wide open  at greater than 1:1 ratio (super shallow dof), and selecting the back flower while on a plane of focus that would also get part of the front flower in focus.

       

      Then in Photoshop, I added a racial motion blur to the tips of the front flower and used a selective color layer to manipulate the colors.
