Took this while at the park with my son. Was a quick shot and really windy so the bush kept moving. I thought was still nice Smile

Good capture of bee and flower. Sharp and well focused with a nice out of focus background. The main point I would like to make is the on its side composition. Although the flower was sideways on I reckon (just my view) the the 90 deg shift in my mod improves the image.
regards, Ian

Not a bee, a Hoverfly. One of dozens of varieties. Decent effort with a kit lens but, ideally, you need to be rather closer and the images needs to be a lot sharper. Close up is not easy, particularly of small insects and really needs quite specialist gear. As said, you have not done too bad.
