WordPress Weekly Challenge – Lost in the Detail

This week we are asked to see details in a larger scene – once we have chosen a subject to shoot, then work a little further into the scene.  The example was a landscape – read here – but I have another example which meets the brief.  This year I planted some sunflowers specifically with the intention to photograph them when in flower.  This was the first one which bloomed, and I was very pleased with this shot.  Nice blurred background of a fresh unblemished flower that had not been attacked by bugs etc etc…

Then I looked a little closer…..

And what did I see?

A couple of little Ladybirds and some larvae hiding in the flower’s bracts.  In my opinion, a good example of getting lost in the detail!
