[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
although i think it is not sharp it was very difficult to get this guy as he was a fast mover and the light was not bright enough for a really fast photo.

however i think it is a cool action shot of a bee. ill try and get a more clear one in the future
(no post editing) any tips

Hello Dom !
This is a nice picture even if, as you say in your note the focus is a bit soft. The composition and POV (point of view) are beautiful, and the white blurred flower makes a wonderful BG, on which the bee stands out nicely. Well done !

Hello Dom,
As you already did mention, the image lacks some sharpness and contrast, but it really is a very nice action shot indeed.
Nain reason why it is'nt totally sharp are the low shutter speed and aperture you did have to use because of the low light, but you did make the best out of it and with a few adjustments in photoshop the image can be cleared.
Image quality is'nt the best because of the smal upload, but I did give it a try wich you can look at in WS.
Hope you like it.
Best regards,
