Capturing this image presented me with the most amazing feeling….can you imagine standing in a deserted overgrown huge country garden at sunset, with orange cosmos flowers at shoulder height and taller…I was entranced with the noise and activity of the bees as they worked busily in the last orange rays of sun.
