Nice capture Jane good colour and detail, but the focus on the bee is a little soft.

Try selecting the central focusing point on the camera, if you haven't already done so and try using the camera in A/V mode set @ f8 with an ISO speed of 400.

The higher ISO speed (400) will help keep a faster shutter speed which in turn will help to produce a sharper image.

I take most of my wildlife shots using these settings and they generally produce good in focus images.

Enjoy your new toy and don't be afraid to experiment with it, if it's no good just delete and try again.

Regards.............Tony.
