Hola Ana,
Perfecta iluminación sobre la abeja, que encuentro difícil de conseguir con el blanco de la flor. Se ven muy bien los detalles y el uso de la profundidad de campo no puede ser mejor.
Un saludo cordial
José M.

Hi Ana,

A great photo compositionaly regarding. However I feel you could use some greater DOF, by narrowing the aperture at let's say f/8 (resulting also a shutter of 1/125, which would be just okay for your subject - the bee is busy eating and I don't think is moving too fast). You should try to use the 1/1000 shutter sped when you try to catch them on flight.

Regards, Petru

Hello Ana!
Very nice close up.Details are crisp clear and razorsharp.
I liked framing,POV and composition also a lot.

All that pollen .... ohh i suffer so much, its nice to see these little insects flying around all day collecting. Nice shot . The first one you had on the yellow flower was a great shot, this one a little soft but still a good one. Well done. Demetrio

Hello my friend,
This is your no 50 and it is one fine macro!
You're getting better by the day now, Ana...
I think super narrow DOF works well here!

Hello Ana, looks like the bee was very busy. lol. Too bad the face is not visible. But, I know that flying insects are so difficult to shot at. I love the colors, the flower is also very nice. TFS, Gabriel

Mas que coisa linda.!!!
Well presented, & focused.
The colours are also well balanced.
Great clarity.
