I love the image and composition. Great capture on the bee! Body seems sharp.

My only suggestion would be to either make the colour of the flower petals more saturated, or have the background a bit more dark, so the petals stand out against it a bit more.

Take care,
Glen

focus seems just a bit off. The focus point seems to be somewhere around the closest petal in the front.

Thanks, Glen and ewheeler for the comments. ewheeler, you are right about the focus. I noticed the same thing when viewing the photo for the first time but I liked the photo too much not to share it.

I agree with tacticdesigns, regarding a dark background. Probably a black would have made the flower and the bee to stand out. But, I understand its almost impossible to judge at this action moment.

Nice one. Looks like the bee has a helicopter rotor!
