DANG YOU! I've been trying to shoot one of these little guys for two years. Maybe the bees fly slower in G-ville, SC than they do in Canton, NC. ahahha

You nailed this puppy. Great focus, colors and dof. The lighting is good, and the background is blurred enough to really make the colors of the flower "snap," and the bee stand out.

Compositionally, it is a little off-balanced. Obviously, cropping wasn't allowed, but cropping some off of the top and left would really make this a fascinating shot (but I suspect you probably know that).

Not a lot that I can add, I don't think, other than excellent capture, and with some non-minimal post-processing, you have a real zinger, here, I think.

<karmat reminds herself to try a bigger lens and action mode next time>

If I need to further clarify anything, please PM me.

Good timing to get the bee in flight....good DOF. Shame there isn't more detail in the bee, it's very dark in spots.

I like the whir of the wings. If it were allowed, I'd say crop out the dark red to the right, but considering, not bad. The focus on the bee is great.
