About the Image(s)

It was taken with my Olympus M1 MKii and 12-100 lens. 1/320 @ f5, ISO 200. Processed in Lightroom.
> I noticed a bush with a bunch of bees all over it. There were two different kinds of bees but this was the best image. It was taken with the lens at 100mm and inches from the bee and flower.

I can see the pollen on the bee - he is doing his job! I like the red spots in the background, they draw my eyes to the yellow flower and the bee. The green leaves create a frame for the flower. I can see the 'hairs' on the green leaves - focus is precise!   Posted: 11/12/2019 15:37:53

Very nice photograph. Love the colors in the placement in the photograph, not using the center all the time. I agree with Ginny, the focus looks really good too. Cheerful photo.   Posted: 11/12/2019 18:24:28

I do love bee photos and he is hard at work. I personally like centered photos, but I do enjoy the red in the background. Nicely done.   Posted: 11/21/2019 10:48:28

Great image and focus too. I think that your composition is great as well. I do think that the red spots could be toned down a bit, so that the flower and bee are the brightest and stand out more.   Posted: 11/22/2019 19:27:15

I like the composition. It is difficult to get everything in focus. You have done a good job. I think mI would like less red in the background.   Posted: 11/23/2019 10:34:20
