This is beautiful! Absolutely stunning I know people say it would look cool in black and white, but I say leave it how it is. The vivid purple of the flower and the subtle yellow/black of the bee look lovely against each other. Although if you were to make it black and white, I do support the idea of using an editing website that allows you to let one color stay - and I would make that the yellow on the bee. Leaving the purple in would be pretty, but it would make the photograph confusing, as the center of attention should be the bee on the flower, not the flower itself.
I like how the photograph captures the bee's fuzziness It's cute.
Lovely work!

The flower and the bee are great! I love the colour and everything, but my eye was sort of drawn more to what's in the top right corner there.

There is this thing called bokeh, which means blur in Japanese. It encompasses all blurs, but good bokeh means round disks of blur. You can acquire this by angling your camera to the sun, or faking it with icicle christmas lights . Your photo doesn't really have good bokeh, but it is a little hard to get.

Your photo is quite lovely :3
