[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was photographing honeybees zipping from flower to flower, and didn't realize how heavy their legs were from the pollen. I don't know the type of flowers these are.

I only cropped, adjusted contrast and brightness, and then resized, sharpened, and framed the photo.

nice photo and well bright. How did yo make a frame ?

Nice shot Joy!
The photo itself is very good, has nice POV and composition. Colours are very natural. The quality isn't perfect, but I undestand this is because of the camera. Anyway, the details are well visible.
I like the photo very much, but I must admit I don't like the frame at all. It seems to be too bigand too distracting.

A nice shot of the bee, that has some technical problems I find disturbing. The bee is well focussed and exposed, but the whites of the flowers are blown, and out of focus due to shallow DOF. The frame is a distraction, IMO.
