I had spent most of the time on this particular summer week trying to find insects to photograph but there were no bees and no butterflies and just a lot of mosquitoes until I discovered this bumblebee in the rose. At first I thought it was resting because there was no movement which proved not to be true. It was just that the bumblebee was having a difficult time trying to take off loaded up with pollen.

Now that's what I call soft. The petals look to be soft as silk.

Pink of course is a colour that fully embodies the meaning of the word soft and petal-soft is a well used adjective which everyone understands.
Good interpretation.

Everything perfectly and lusciously soft; great idea.

Jan, Hi:


I like the color and the bee - wonderful softness for the theme.


Well Done

Perfect for that particular theme Jan, the rose itself is soft but the bee softer juts with its fluffy look. Bumblebees are ungainly anyway, I have spent the week watching them trying to feed on columbines, they just can't work out that the flower hangs down,
