A Bee...yeah, I know...
Lens: M100/4 Macro Camera: K5ii Photo Location: Some Bushes ISO: 3200 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F11

There are a lot of macro pictures of bees, but I've not had much luck and this is my best result to date, so here it is. Advice, criticism, feedback and name calling are all welcome and appreciated.

It's a very nice picture.
It is a bit dim, so I did a one click "auto levels" in Gimp. I generally don't tinker with people's photos, so I hope you're not offended.
If you like the retouching I did, Gimp is free. If you use Photoshop or another program, I'm sure they have "auto levels" also.

I like it! I got my first bee picture a few days ago. I like yours. It's in better focus than mine. I like the plant it's on too.
