Douglas George submitted this photo of a bee on a flower taken with a Nikon D40X with an exposure of 1/160 sec at f/6.3 and ISO 100. This photo is pretty cliché. I see tons of shots of flowers, especially with bugs on them. If you find yourself shooting a cliché try to change it up. Go extremely macro for lot of detail or a different angle. Also, do not place your subject in the center of the photo. Use the rule of thirds and get a much better composition. According to the rule of thirds, the subject should be placed either the right or the left third of the photo and the top or bottom third. The only good thing I can say about this photo is the out of focus background helps the viewer focus on the subject itself.
