Olympus EM 1 Mk II with M Zuiko macro 60 mm f2.8; ISO 400 1/640sec f4.5. Handheld.

I found it easier to shoot with the Olympus than the Nikon for handheld close-up shots like this.

Thanks for viewing !!

A very determined-looking bee- nicely detailed with pollen on it's legs. Nice perspective and focus.

Nice composition and details on the bee. I like the way you placed the flower head in the left lower corner with petals on the right lower corner leading to the head. Shallow dof works well here.

Love your comp - placement of the subject and the petals both radiating out and leading the eye into the honeybee.
Good light,
