Close up on a bee in action, taken from a meadow in
Rozel Bay, near the footpath to White Rock, Jersey Island.

Picture is a little bit noisy, but was made with open focus in ISO 200. I didn't have any tripod that time so it was only way to shoot nice and sharp photos.

This is one of my favourite macro picture- I like composition here and smooth, soft colours.
Thank You for any comments and critics.

Hello Adrian
I can see why this is one of your favourite macro pictures...you have got very sharp details on the bee and managed a very pastel coloured bg..Very good focusing.
Best Regards

Hi Adrian!

Very good macro, composition is splendid indeed! Yes, a bit noisy but I think it is still not an annoying amount. Nice shot, TFS!

Best regards,
