oh, Sarah - this is another stunning, beautiful capture - your titles are perfect for your photos; please tell me you saw the petal AFTER you took the photo...

17 Apr 2009 2:04pm

@bridget: Thanks so much Bridget! Your last comment made me laugh! What I noticed was that the bumble bee was making the petals fall as he went about his business so I took the photo hoping that I'd catch it but didn't realise I had until I got home and downloaded it!
