*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A well executed macro that needs the title to fulfil the challenge brief.

It's a great macro you've captured here with plenty of interesting detail and good sharp focus where its needed, on the eye. The surrounding flower and crop isolate it in an attractive beneficial way. There is great detail in the bee and its hairy body it makes for lots of interesting detail to take in.

In terms of the challenge the image relies totally upon the title, I wouldn't know how you begin to recognise happiness in a bee! And we also depend upon your title to even know that it is alive! So, although it is a great macro I would imagine these are the reasons why it didn't score better during the challenge.

Nicely done, thanks for your submission and apologies for the delayed critique, as they say, 'better late than never', or at least I hope it is, Sid
