Wow...that is sharp! ...but what impresses me the most is the great colors in the shot...in particular in the bee. Fantastic!

Great color and detail! Love the fur on this guy. Is that a pollen ball he's playing with on the right?

That's very brave using a 35mm for a macro shot of a bee!

Thanks selar, the bees here at least are pretty focused and for the most part ignore me , if they get annoyed the fly away

THanks grw46 , it's a fine lens and any issues can be traced to operator error
