A bee landed on a poppy in our front garden this morning. Mobile shot with pin sharp stamens and hairs on the stem then a bastard flies off

I was this had come out better and more in focus.

It's still one of my favourite photos I've taken, maybe my actual favourite, but it annoys me that it's a bit blurry and the colours are a bit rubbish.

I'm presuming that's a portrait stuart and not a selfie, although that is exactly how I picture you.

Given that he always gives the impression of not having or at least not seeing family, I'm kind of hoping it is him rather than some random girl that he lured in with a teddy bear

Nothing that a bit of fill flash (which you can kindasorta fake in Photoshop; carefully mask the little girl and use an adjustment layer to nudge the exposure up by half a stop) wouldn't fix.
