Lunch on the wing?

By MrsMad  
When visited Grosmont on Saturday, we we standing on the viewing platform waiting for the steam engine to start up. I was having a look around when I spotted the bees around these flowers. There was a slight breeze so my image is not quite as sharp as I would have liked it, however I was very pleased to get this bee making its way to the flower.
AP 5.6 which gave a shutter speed of 1/60th

Any comments/critique welcome.

Nicely timed shot, shame about that pesky wind. It always seems to blow when I take plant shots too.

Looks a little over-sharpened to me, check the hard lines around the flower edges. The colours and composition are good though.

Nice one, love the action of the bumble bee. Must have been hard to get.

Damn that wind! I share your frustration Robbie! The number of times I've tried to get something like this....

I really like the composition. It makes the shot.
