Foxglove (Digitalis) is a very poisonous plant, but that doesn’t affect the bee. It’s just looking for honey. It takes a while to take the photo, but I was on my own, holidays, nothing else to do but wait, wait, …

You have really great depth of field throughout the foxgolves - yet the bee seems a tad on the softside.

I think this is due to the highlights and perhaps a little movement of the bee while you shot.

Composition is pretty good - colour and delails in the plants really good - just a shame about the be - If you use lightroom try using the brush on the bee to see if you can balance him more to the image.

If you have any room on the original - I also think it would benefit moving left just a tad, a little more of the plant will not hurt.

Apply the 3rd rule.

Have fun - Do you really like crooked things?

I do like crooked things, in the sense that I like shooting unusual object.
Love to get some more advice, for now
