Hi Ana
Very sharp capture of this little bee, but I just wonder if you could not perhaps have increased on the DOF by closing down on the aperture, say f/4+ at least. You had ample shutter speed to play with. Sorry, I just realised that your Minolta Dimage probably do not give you the ability to modify f/stop and/or shutter speed. Anyway, that could have helped to get the wings in full focus as well. The details on the bee itself are super sharp though. The composition and POV are very interesting. Maybe you could have tried to darken those OE white areas at the bottom right and top left as well, as it tends to draw the eye towards it.
Well done after all and TFS.

Hola Ana,
¡Foto de una nitidez extrema! Lástima que el ala esté fuera de foco.
La composición es original, con ese trozo de planta tan grande en el centro. Me produce una oscilación en la atención entre la abeja y esa incompresible forma vegetal, que quizás sea el objetivo de la composición.

Gracias por compartir.
José M.
