|This was one of about two dozen bee shots I took one afternoon when it had been raining. The bee was very, very docile and hardly moved throughout my friend and I taking macro shots.
I had a very hard decision with sharpening, as it made the background very slightly noisy. In the end I thought the clarity of the foreground image was important enough.
I would really have preferred it to adhere to the rule of thirds more, but the wing position made this more difficult, as I wanted to keep the bee fairly large in the photo. I would also have liked to rotate the image more, but this photo is 1:1 out of my 3.2MP camera, so when rotating it made the bee look much smaller.
I'm fairly pleased with the image, but as always, I could spend a lifetime post-processing it! I hope it doesn't fall down too much because of composition.
