"Bees"



Hi all...I wanted to share three photos I took today of the busy bees buzzing around the sedum in my backyard. I spent about an hour today out there trying to capture decent images of the bees. I would appreciate any comments. Thanks!

Very nice images. The first has the edge I think, very well composed and slightly better background. Certainly worth the hours effort.

Nice set!

I like the first one best. Good composition, the bee is very clear and isolated from everything behind it.

Best regards,
-Ron

Great pics. I agree the first is best. Have you thought of cropping the second one so it is half its depth and reveals as 'letter box' size. Thius remove some they bottom distraction.

Thanks everyone. I did think the first one looked the best because of the green background. I appreciate the comments and suggestions!
