I think a deeper DOF might have accentuated the bees a bit more. Maybe bump the ISO up and stop down the lens and get more in focus.

Nice capture, wish you upped the sat a little. Variation in composition to get the bird better placed within the frame likely give this extra too. 720 also if the quality is there.

Dangerous stuff! I find the lack of sharpness a bit distracting from the image

I'd love to see more of the bird but I can see where you are going with this, showing us the bird and the bees and the habitat.

wonderful shot, good colors and contrast and saturation. It's a bit soft, but I guess that could be low megapix or too much crop. Otherwise a very nice photo. Nice catchlight in the eyes !!!

A curiously engaging natural capture. Wonder how often the poor thing gets stung? Or is it eating the bees? Neat shot.
