I liked the blue behind this Milk Thistle. While I was working on this shot, a bee flew in. I thought it looked more interesting with the bee, adding another element to the image.

We went to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA to go through their new Meadow Gardens which opened earlier this Spring. It is 86 acres with about 3.5 miles of trails weaving through this area. Before you get to this area, there are many acres of formal gardens, a Conservatory and other buildings. On the way to the Meadows we photographed our way to them. Here is a bee getting nectar early in the morning along one of the Garden Paths. I used a Canon EOS 1D MkIV with a Sigma 150mm f/2.8 Macro with a Canon 1.4X Series II Teleconverter for a combined focal length of 273mm macro, taking into the 1.3 crop of the camera. I shot at f/4.5 to to keep a shallow depth of field to highlight the bee and to keep him as the main subject.
