Theme : Bees And Bugs In The Garden
Photo by Michel Poisson
No details unfortunately.
Wow….sharpness, ideal composition and placement, soft lighting, perfection in the depth of field…what more can I say?
Let’s start with placement and movement. The position of the subject and the grass create a wonderful composition. The eyes of the insect seem to be in line with the rule of thirds and the blade of grass accentuates the composition.
The depth of field offers us a gorgeous window seat into the macro world of nature. Michael has positioned himself in such a way that’s allowed us to enjoy the insect and blurred the background enough for us to enjoy the world the insect lives in. The background is just very slightly detailed to give us an understanding of the world, yet blurry enough to keep the insect and its temporary landing area as the main point of interest.
The sharpness of the insect is gorgeous. It supplies us with enough detail to see that this little being has an incredible weird and wonderful form, and how naturally at home it must be in its surroundings.
Michael, you’ve done a superb job. Well done
Amy & Paul

Wow some great entries this month, it was really hard to choose!!
Thank you very much for taking the time to submit your photos. You have done a great job. We have a limitation of one Winner and 8 finalists photos. This is due to the wonderful success and popularity of Focus Ezine and that we are now getting a large number of entries each month. If you don’t see yours here it’s not because we didn’t like it, it’s simply because of space limitations.
Please add your comments about any of these great photo efforts at the bottom of the page.
