Voted earlier coming back to leave comments now. Nice macro shot of this bee! Love the details we see from the hairs on the head, the antenae, and the wings. Lighting is lovely with some nice sheen popping off the sunshine yellow flower petals.

The soft pale vignette works well - echoes the softness of the bee's downy fur. A beautiful colour palette too.

Nice detail

Who doesn't love a great macro of an insect?!
In this case, I could take or leave the white vignetting in the corners and a wee bit more sharpening is necessary, IMHO. But dang cool, overall!

Great detail. Nice job with the macro.
