This is what I will be seeing every day. I have a very sad Nectarine tree but every Spring it bursts into life with blossoms. These flowers attracts the Native Stingless Bees.

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #146 – Focusing on the Details
Like all photographers I like to find a subject and get set to take the photograph doing all the usual things which becomes innate after a while. Position of the subject, rule of thirds perhaps, lighting, background noise and all those things that make your photo the fabulous one you want.
One thing I like is after the photo has been taken and you plug the camera in to download and get a surprise to find something else in the image while you were busy focusing on the detail. Lets see what we can find among these photos.
Did you see the insect before or after seeing the Dandelion?
I wonder if you saw the flower buds or the spider or the insects who may not have known the spider was there too first
Was your focus drawn to the flowers detail, the Native Stingless Bees or the tiny jumping spider?
Getting in close to focus on the detail
The yellow Alamanda flower or the Ghost Crab Spider first?
In among the Torch Ginger flower lurks another tiny spider
I was after a photo of the small Billy Bonkers Grevillea flower as the light was so good, I didn’t see the ants
Another ant on a flower that was missed until down loading
Did you see the leaf, verandah boards, butterfly wing or the ant moving the wing?
An ants work is hard going
I didn’t see the Dwarf Eastern Tree Frog as the water lily flower looked so good in the late afternoon light
Who was inside the flower?
I hope you enjoyed trying to find what can be found while you focus on the detail.
