Hi from the CC Club,

Nice title!!! When it comes to macros, you need to have your subject tack sharp. Your bee's are out of focus, they can move pretty fast so a faster shutter speed is needed. I am not sure why your ISO is so high, where you in the shade or was it later on in the evening that you took this?

You shot could have been helped with a wider DOF. In post processing, a little bump in the colours would have helped and some sharpening too.

I think this shot could have been amazing with alittle wider DoF. The bees are a tad out of focus, but other than that. The composition and colors are great, and the bokeh in the background is a nice touch as well...

Good capture; not crisp enough.
