Next to yesterday's waterfalls were banks of gorgeous Columbine. I chose this shot because of the bug.

That bug seems to reflect the colors of the columbine and the leaves.
This is a magnificent macro...one of my favorites, Jack. BRAVO !!

It is not frequent in France to cross red Ancolies. This one is full of light.

Fantastic! The moment captured, incoming, is excellent. The colors are just amazing, and the image almost surreal in scale and intensity. That red and green are just wow.
20 Aug 2010 1:51pm
A fine action shot. The intense color is striking, but the capture of a visitor in mid air is so good!!!
20 Aug 2010 2:39pm
Wow the color is so striking. Excellent job catching nature in motion.
20 Aug 2010 3:24pm
Wonderful. That is the cool shot of the day.

Great ! Crazy colors :))

Alors là!!! droit devant ,elle lui ouvre les bras...émouvant chacun a du rouge et du jaune...la nature en pleine action...
20 Aug 2010 4:47pm
These colors are so strong - is that how they were or did you increase them, Jack?
20 Aug 2010 5:18pm
@Judy aka Ladybug: These were the most vivid Columbine that I have seen.
Perfect! That bug chose the perfect flight path. Very cool!

Really well done.Great color.

What an amazing specimen (unknown for me). An explosion of colors. A beauty indeed. There's a flying admirator.
20 Aug 2010 6:55pm
@Florence: It was the position of the bug that determined the shot. I captured it in different places around the blossom, but this was the best location.
Sublime ... ))
20 Aug 2010 8:24pm
Muy dificil hacer este tipo de captura, muy buena, saludos
20 Aug 2010 8:39pm

20 Aug 2010 9:19pm
Wow! "What a unique find," I said to myself when the photo first loaded. And then to scroll down and see the bug captured in mid-air really put the icing on the cake!
20 Aug 2010 9:40pm

Wonderful timing with the bug coming in and love the red of the flowers
20 Aug 2010 11:36pm
timing, colour, intensity -- great combo
21 Aug 2010 12:25am
Wow! great capture! How did you do it!!! Superb in motion shot! love the colors and details!
21 Aug 2010 1:33am
@Wild Mustang Photography: I ran the ISO up so that I could use a fast shutter speed. And then I fired away. I've got shots of the bug all over the place; this is the one I preferred. If you look closely, there is another tiny bug on the left side of the flower.
That is so amazing. The best flower and approaching insect scene
I have ever seen. Brilliant work!!

@Phil David Alexander Morris: Thank you very much!
Thats what I call a work of art!! Very well captured!
21 Aug 2010 4:20am
A brilliant macro and the timing is great as the flying insect heads for the honey on offer
21 Aug 2010 6:26am
