Hi Claude.
I like your close-up with excellent reproduction of the bee. Details and sharpness are tremendous. Flower and BG are very impressive at their colourfulness and details too. Lights and colours are wonderful as well as the direct POV. Cropping (on the bottom) is disputable a bit but this is matter of taste. My best wishes and TFS. Well done.

Hi Claude,
Interesting composition and POV. Looks very nice.
Thanks for sharing.

It was real sharp picture and thinking as well...It occurred to me there would be lean months in nature, but hmmmmmm...as I type I think. Perhaps I saved some...anyway it is a classic pose and a good wish with fine colours form Quebec yes?

Bonjour Claude,
Simply beautiful!
Best DOF in good pose of the bee in perfect sharpness, vivid colour and so much details
very well done
