The camera was handheld and I used the auto setting. Very slight editing was done to the image; cropping, increase in highlights, and toning shadows slightly.
On a cool fall morning I saw the sunflowers near an elementary school. After walking up to the sunflowers I noticed several had bees on the stalks. As it was cool, the bees had not become very active and were moving slow. I took my time and focused on one bee, with a sunflower as a background.
