What's wrong they used electrical tape, not Duct tape!!!
This is the kind of stuff people do that really scares me !!! They must have asked Bob at that Home store.
Looking at the MC it looks to be 12 or 14 A.G., I can't tell if the other end is Romex or the end of an extension cord. Either way I doubt if that Red wire nut is much good if one end is 14 AWG and the other is 16 AWG stranded. The worst thing is that for less than $5.00 it could be safe and legal.

They probably should have used yellow caution tape. Does'nt look as though any of the cables are secured or supported (well,..there is that one tie wrap securing 3 of them to a larger flex or vice versa )
That looks like a white water hose on the right of this mess

Let's not forget about the working space violation. It seems that the blue BOX and the brown thing in front of it is just a little closer than 3' away form the panel. I am assuming that is a panel with all of the flex coming out of the bottom. You can tell with all of that flex instead of conduit the work is not done in a neat and workman like manner. I would like to see pictures of the inside of the panel.
