Beautiful shot!!

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo just in my flower garden at home.
Time
I took the photo at around 7:10:15 PM when the wind was already calming.
Lighting
There was still sunshine during the time so i just utilized natural lighting.
Equipment
Canon 1D X, Canon EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM
Inspiration
I was inspired by the colorful and beautiful surrounding. I was inspired by the natural beauty of the bird who was hopping in each one of my flowers and pollinating them. I was inspired by the chirping, flying, and singing of those birds in our yard. I fell in love with them. I think I need them more than they need me.
Editing
I just bumped up the saturation a little. No cropping.
In my camera bag
Canon cameras. canon lenses, batteries
Feedback
Sometimes photographers tend to go anywhere else just to take photos. However, subjects can be found most of the time just in our house, or in our backyard. You just take a closer look on them. Don't take them for granted. If you want to attract birds, butterflies, and insects plant flowers in your backyard. Do not succumb yourself into using chemicals as what advertisements say. Birds, insects, butterflies, and bees don't like them. When your garden is chemical-free it attracts all kinds of wild lives, insects, birds, butterflies then you have abundant of subjects to be photographed and no need for your to spend gasoline to travel in far aware places. When you take photos of flying subject you can use your Image stabilizer so that you have more clearer subject. Be happy always your mood reflect to your photographs. Reminder: HELP FIRGTH AGAINST CHEMICALS MADE BY HUMAN, THEY ARE JUST HARMFUL TO OUR SUBJECTS AND MOST ESPECIALLY TO OUR LOVEONES.
