i think you have used in this shot 18-55 mm kit lens and you have captured the bee very well. the buds at the bottom left side of the frame leading our eyes to the bee and it is a good diagonal composition. you may have tried to make a balance with a bud (i suppose) at the top left side of the frame and a bud at the bottom right side of the frame. but by doing this you have included some unwanted space at the top of the frame. you could have avoided symmetrical balancing for this shot without compromising for any unwanted space at the top of the frame. in my modification i have avoided this kind of balancing.

always try to consult the in camera histogram for proper exposure.
you can see at the histogram that there is so much clipping at the left side wall that means the shadow area in this image has lost detail. i have also made level adjustment in my modification.

a new and quick technique about dslr(any kind) is slightly overexposure but not clipping at the right side wall of the histogram can give you more tonal range by post processing and can reduce noise. so exposure compensation can misguide you. It is a result of recent research if anybody interested to know it can PM me.
