Bathing in Pollen by FramedByNature Bathing in Pollen by FramedByNature

I have entered this piece in the "Detail in Macro" contest [link]
---Technique---
First, I pinched off a rosemoss flower at the stem (I was sure to choose one that still had plenty of pollen). I then held the flower in my left hand. Once an insect came along, I carefully peeled back a petal and balanced my camera on my left arm. In doing so, if the flower moved, my camera moved with it since they were balanced on the same surface.
I used digital macro mode for this photo, which allowed for a slightly closer zoom and sharper focus.
The afternoon sunlight was diffused by a shady tree.
I adjusted the brightness/contrast a bit to make the pollen grains stand out more.

Please tell me what you think! :dance:
