Nice capture of a bee on a biennial bee blossom. The eyes appear to be in sharp focus. The background seems a little busy and distracting because the green stem and leaves are so bright and the orange bud is same color as the bee's body. But, the bee and the bee blossom are in good focus.   Posted: 09/04/2020 09:16:50

Always being ready should be a photographer's motto! Nice quick capture. Suggest cropping out everything except the bee and white flower. After cropping, try flipping the photo vertically and see if you like it. Nice sharp bee capture.   Posted: 09/10/2020 13:37:23

You caught the moment with reasonably good focus on the bee. I like the blurred background. I would suggest a slight vignette to keep the viewer's eye in the frame.   Posted: 09/12/2020 07:47:32

I can't add anything to improve this image, considering the non-studio conditions under which the photograph was taken.
Good focus on the bee and flower, and effective bokeh.   Posted: 09/14/2020 21:44:36
