Love the diagonal composition and the capture of the feeding bee.

Great head-on view of the bee- something you don't usually see. Beautifully situated on the catnip with excellent clarity and lovely soft background. Love the diagonal comp. I wonder if you could take the whites/lights down just a tad in the flowers. Perhaps just a bit more contrast? That said-it's still a terrific photo.

Love the diagonal comp and soft/muted colors. Also the face-on POV. Blossom highlights might be a bit hot?
Good light,

rhigercat, Nice image. I think the comp is my favorite part of the image.
