You makes best a macro with a tripod or monopod and very close.
One point on the subject, background blur, later can you cropping.
This picture is not bad but not real a macro shot.
Nice composition, good exposure, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

The leaves are framing well the branch and the bee. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the branch and of the bee. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

luce un po' forte ma immagine che malgrado ciò esce bene con il verde di fondo, la pianta e l'ape,

The bees always so hardworking, looking for nectar to give us a rich honey.
Excellent frame full of light and freshness.

Very good macro that show us the flowering of this tree and the bee seeking their nectar, beautiful harmony of colors with these shades of green on which stands the tree and its flowering.
Good management of light and color.
Have a nice weekend.

We can see it is a sunny and probably warm day, and the bees are still active. I wonder what a tree it can be, I have never seen such one. Very interesting and nice shot. Excellent compo.

Well caught a flower, like the inconspicuous and how beautiful. And yet this little bee on a flower. I really like these beneficial insects. Wonderful colors and excellent image quality.
בוקר טוב. נתפס טוב פרח, כמו בולט וכמה יפה. ובכל זאת, זה דבורה קטנה על פרח. אני ממש אוהב את אלה חרקים מועילים. צבעים נפלאים ואיכות תמונה מעולה. דרישת שלום.

I liked the framing. these details of the flower are nice. the bee isn't so sharp because its movement, maybe it would be better if the bee was photographed without movement.

Nice capture! The other day, I tried to capture a bumble bee, but they are so elusive, I had to shoot many times before i could get one in focus or in the frame. I like the green background.
