Spring tulips are one of my favorite photographic subjects. Blessed with elegance, beauty and color, they become even more dazzling in the right light. This photo of a white spring tulip and bee was captured at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in Brooklyn, NY.
The afternoon sun provides strong back-lighting in this setting, illuminating the translucent white tulip and creating a series of glowing out of focus highlights in the background. The appearance of the bee was an unexpected bonus that occurred just as I was focusing my camera. A happy accident indeed!. I love the joyous spring colors that adorn this scene.
