Hi Benyamin

Wonderful capture of this bee in flight. Perfect sharpness and DOF (which is not easy on these quick insects). Lovely light and beautiful colours

Hi Benyamin,

Beautiful composition with lovely pastel colours. You had to be very fast to capture this one with such sharpness, I really like seeing the blurry wings giving a great movement to this action shot! Perfect background which matches so well with the subject. Congratulations!

Hi Benyamin,

Excellent macro work.
Very sharp of honey bee and 'bunga semalu' (shy flower!)
best regards,

Good to receive your kind critique on my recent picture, Ben. Thanks a lot for it.
This image, first and foremost, is a very beautiful composition with the flowers and a Bee.
You have frozen the subject in mid-flight with super focus. The details and colours on the bee are just perfect.
Well done and TFS.
