Well, it seems that SOMEONE told the bee to sting the poor dog, and when that happened, the dog snapped up the offending bee and ate him (stinger no longer a defense to the bee since it was stuck in the dog's tender nose ). This photo is several days later -- AFTER the swelling has subsided....

Like CJ said "good one" Also, the sketch looks great, very appropriate for the pic. Thanks!

Drach,

I DO like it. The flower in the foreground works really well. Very clean extraction or masking or whatever.

CJ,

If you only knew, he was far from snoozing. He was using every ounce of obedience he has in him to stay down until I gave him the treat I was holding. ( I probably should have kept you all thinking I just captured a cute candid shot.) I'm sure he appreciates the shade though.

Thanks for your detailed description of your channels approach. I'll have to give your technique a try.

Annabel

I'm even MORE impressed that you were able to set up a controlled shot! My dogs would be showing that they were waiting for the cookie IF they managed to stay and not just kiss the lens while looking for the cookie.

There's a tutorial here on this site that shows making a channel mask -- look at that, also.

Craig,

That's hiLARious. I was literally LOL. And not too far from reality. He is just dumb enough to try and eat bees, he does it all the time.

Steve,

Love the subtle painterly effect just applied to the flower and keeping the detail in the bee.

CJ,

Well that's his only trick, "Down and Stay".
Thanks for the tip about Channel masks. I'll find it and give it a try.

Thanks to you all,
Annabel

YES! CJ, that's exactly what happened!

I'm glad somebody figured this out. 8-)
