Looks like a good sharp shot to me, I like it.

Hi Alison,
good to see another post from you! :-D
This is a splendid photo of this pretty bumble-bee!
The colours are beautiful!
I think a better composition would be to crop the top and left side tighter. I did a workshop to show this.
Nevertheless this photo has great sharpness, superb clarity, a brilliant POV and decent DOF.
Keep them coming!

A lovely shot of this bee. I would suggest a crop from the left and the top to place the bee in a better position compositionally - I was going to do a workshop but I see Joe has already done exactly what I was going to do. :) He's done a great job of the workshop and no doubt you'll you see how a stronger composition and some slight sharpness and contrast adjustments make all the difference, turning a good shot into an excellent shot.
Well done.
