Buff-tailed Bumblebee (Bombus terrestris) and Sunflowers

I'm very proud of the sharpness and composition of this capture, as it wasn't cropped at all in the postprocessing: it is the original vertically-oriented image as it came out of the camera. Of course I tweaked the color balance, contrast, brightness and saturation a bit, but really didn't have to work much on the raw shot.

As for the main subject, I've been looking up all the Bumblebee species that can possibly be spotted in Italy and I'm fairly certain that I'm correct when I say that it is a Buff-tailed Bumblebee (Bombus terrestris) that came visit my flowers.

Photo taken with Manual settings - the shallow DOF and bokeh are 100% natural and lens-made, no textures applied.

Shot with a Canon PowerShot SX1 IS
Full View highly recommended | I hope you'll like it!
