That is really good. It is well focused, well exposed and has a nice composition. The only thing at all negative is the lower part of the bee gets a bit lost on the flower. But I am probably "beeing" a bit nit-picky about that. Keep on shooting, you know how tohandle your camera.

Good job -- I like it! Assuming you resized this for posting you could try cropping it way down to emphasize the bumbler, something like this:

I've posted a picture herenamed"A butterfly on a flower", and one of the comments was that its too centerd, so this time I tried to move it a little bit, what do you think?

I see... you put the subject left of center this time, which I would say is an improvement over the butterfly. You even placed it at about 1/3, and perhaps you have heard of the so-called "rule of thirds" that suggests this is good placement.

In both pics you have a good background in the sense that it is nicely blurred and does not distract the subject. I submit however that the background consumes too much of the frame.

But I stick to my original suggestion about cropping (^: If your original images have the luxury of size, you can crop each of them to make the subjects much larger in the frame, thus emphasizing your rather nice captures.

Nice job!

Ok Bigboy ,you have posted it on C&T section,So you are bound to get some constructive critique ( which is good) I like your picture but I am more in tune to Smartin composition perticularly for this shot.But that is the individual taste and thinking .I too learn here

I like taking pictures of bees too. It's pretty easy if you have access to flowers and it's how i got into macro photography
