Beetle Dreaming


I went for a lunchtime walk today and spotted a lovely Broom bush. It turns out that the flowers, though beautiful, are pretty hard to photograph and most of my shots aren’t very good. But this shot of a tiny beetle on one of the flowers worked well. This has been tweaked a lot in Lightroom – my son was “assisting” me and kept getting me to push the sliders much further than I would normally, so I’ve ended up with a shot that isn’t very realistic, but is really nice and dreamy. Perhaps I should get him to help more often as he seems to have a talent for pushing the boundaries a bit to get a really good arty shot.
