Emotion: Fear

Peek-A-Boo, a photo by Fergiemoto on Flickr.  (Click on photo to enlarge)

Quivering glances
Timid trust pleads for shutters
Mind-blast softens fright

This is the third photo in my emotion series.  In reality, this bumble-bee seemed to be unconcerned about my presence.  As long as I didn’t disturb it or approach too closely, it just went about its business.   The results of this shot evoked some subtle feelings of hesitation and even trepidation, so I decided to enhance those feelings with some motion blur.

    I like your haiku, and the way the bee seems to be hiding a little from view behind the petals.

    Hesitation bleeding over into trepidation: love the way you blurred to interpret this reaction on YOUR part to the bee’s reaction. (Chain reaction, do you think?) How often the fears that paralyze our society become a destructive chain reaction.
