Marc, this is a nice look at your little green friend. I have tried getting a shot that I was satisfied with of one of these, and haven’t yet, so I am enjoying this. The green bee on the white/yellow flowers makes him show up nicely. You have a nice smooth background that lets the flower and the bee stand out nicely. I like the vertical view. Nice sharpness on the face of the bee. Well done!

Marc: Terrific capture. I like how the shallow DOF brings attention the the eyes and antennae. A touch more sharpness on the flower center parts would make me extremely happy but this works very well as is. Top notch shot. >=))>
