    Um, im goign to be full on honest with this picture because its late and im tired.

    That does not look like a bee
    The bokeh isn't strong enough
    background is distracting
    not close enough to the insect
    looks like a snapshot with a dslr
    your lens are VERY VERY dirty

    positive things

    the flower is nice
    if you were closer it would look a lot better
    its sharp

    I am not sure how to explain this since I am new to photography but maybe if you turned down the vibrance or saturation in a processing program. It's one of the two I think. Then again maybe I am completely off, is it contrast or hue or something haha:lol: I think someone out there knows what I mean

    the background is the flaw. any reason for not lowering your camera?

    I agree with wimfoto. too much white stuff. try cropping it out. maybe use a higher fstop. the vibrant colors in the background is diverting attention from the main subject
