Here is a snap shot of a bee I saw while hiking in Tennessee. Just thought I would share it to go along with all the other nice photos of bees that have been posted on TPF as of late. It's not a macro per say just a close up, my lens is not rated to do true macro shots. Feel free to C & C as you feel led. My own after thoughts: 1.) Cut off petals at the bottom. 2.) May be a little over saturated but for the most part that was on camera set. 3.) Background is a little noisy, may be a lower ISO. 4.) shallow depth of field may be too shallow but for me I liked the way it turned out and put the subject where I wanted it in the DOF.
