|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Crop pollination is the pollination of crops by natural|
pollinators. Between 15% and 30% of the US food supply
depends on animal-mediated pollination, and it is likely that many insect species other than the widely cultivated European honeybee contribute importantly to numerous crops. Accordingly, pollinators from natural habitats provide a service to local food producers that is also critically important to humanity.

I think you have made an excellent capture here. The photograph is beautifully detailed with excellent colours and a really interesting diagonal composition.
I think you may have just got the sharpest focus on the flower rather than the bee so maybe you should have drawn attention to that in your title. Still a good shot.
