Lovely shot !!......well focused on the bee (the important bit !), with nice colours !

I see you shot at full aperture (f3.5), which gives a VERY limited depth of field.....try f8 or f11 to gain more in focus
& gain a bit of leeway.......& up the ISO to 400 or 800 to retain a reasonable shutter speed of say 1/200th...don't
worry too much about 'noise', Nikon noise control is 1st class !!!!!

Macro work isn't easy, especially hand-held.......so practice, then practice some more !!!.Smile

Love the tones in this Molls - sort of retro - but you always manage such beautiful tones - in everything. Same macro lens as me too - I see what Niknut is saying and sort of agree with him - (his macros are great) but I do love the "other world" look about this which you won't get with F8 or such - or am I wrong? Lovely bokeh too x
