Just outside of my house is a tree where we found these little bees like to spend the night. It is quite amazing; they fly onto a dead branch and clamp their mouths onto it and spend the night.

Amazing find, and glad it wasn't contrived after all :)
Sadly your result (though not bad but) a commentary on conformity.

DOF seems a little too wide open - the details in the eyes are fading along with the branch. This really had potential though.

I had to give at least one image a 9. This was it. Totally OOB. Not your usual stereotype architecture. I don't care if you set this up, it has appeal and it's unique. Even the technicals are good from darker background offsetting the well lit subjects to focus, sat and composition. VWD for a Basic Edit.
