I am really proud of this picture! I worked really hard to compose this image with a completely natural frame. My creative style as a photographer is evolving towards these slightly smaller in frame, habitat focused shots, that involve a lot of beautiful colour and bokeh in the foreground and the background. Filling the frame is easy – this kind of image is much more challenging to get right and therefore so much more rewarding.
