Profusion of nectar

This is the wonderful sight that greeted me when I opened up some hives yesterday - masses of nectar coming in as many new flowers become available - around here cherry, pear, apricot, peach and above all dandelions. I love the fish-eye lens effect on the meniscus - you can see the converging tree canopy above

    I agree with the comments above it needs more "pop" in the colors. I am on the edge with this one but...

    your subjects aren't in focus. this will not make it because there isn't a pop.
