GORGEOUS!!! What wonderful isolation and an artistic masterpiece, Keith. How beautiful. Bravo on your masking skills! It's so important to be able to do this so we can fiddle with the important details without bothering everything else. I just love this. Now, consider doing 49 more to create a lovely little nature book for one of your grandchildren to enjoy! :D Or...the world! :D

Thanks so much for your visit and wonderful comments, I just love seeing what you have to say about my latest! :)

In regards to a trailer being perfect for social distancing, that's what I had thought myself. But unfortunately the parks all shut down, private RV campgrounds were spotty at best, and on top of that, if we'd needed to go to stores for things--it would have been a problem as well, esp if we needed utility things, not grocery. Yeah--I thought originally, we could just go hang out somewhere and wouldn't that be super! But wow...then all the parks shut down--with big fines if you were caught trying to stay illegally--and combined with our head-shaking reports of folks gathering in campgrounds for big parties and such...Steve and I didn't want to get involved in this craziness. Sadly, it seemed wisest to just stay home until things began smoothing out. We are keeping our eyes open to reports of resurgences all over the place but we're going to ignore it all and just go about our business with the hope that we can get by without incident. :)

Thank you so much Janet. No masking skills involved..........I overexposed to get the sky as light as I could at the same time as keeping the detail in the flower and bee. In post processing I just played with the sliders until I got the effect I wanted.

Thanks for bringing me up to date on the situation in the USA. Sadly we have the same idiots here who ignore all the rules and only think of themselves.............add all the BLM protests to the mix and it's very worrying. I'm sure you and Steve will be fine though, providing you're sensible! Take care and have a great time......don't forget to pop in now and then :-)

When viewed large it looks 3D Keith. Such clarity and detail. Very clever putting it on a white background. Reading Janet's comment, I wish I knew how to use making skills! I must sit still one day and learn all these techniques.

It's a beautiful picture Keith.

My masking skills are almost none existent Rosa - I simply overexposed to get the sky as light as possible without losing the detail in the flower and bee. In post processing I just played with the sliders until I got the effect I wanted. Glad you like it and thanks for dropping in.

A very lovely image. The white background really sets off the flower and the bee and intensifies the colour.

On pourrait imaginer que ce soit le 1er matin du monde. Tout, autour de cette abeille et de cette fleur serait à inventer. Peut être que c'était comme ça, peu aprés le big bang. Keith, aurais tu des capactés à voir a travers le temps ? A bientôt. Jean Paul
