Gotta love my Macro lens. Sigma 105mm EX F2.8 Macro.

Hand held. Pumped up the saturation a little bit with Photoshop to give it a bit more kick.

I know, out of 300 pics, there will be 200 bugs, but I hope to be top 10 in the bug pics. lol. I like it.

Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh! The boby count continues: Five Green ribbons (4th places) and three purple ribbons (5th places). But seriously, thank you for all the nice comments and the generous votes.

Cheer,

Jacques.

I was sure this was a ribbon, but some tough competition. Again, great shot.

Nice bee macro. Good contrast with the colour of the flower and nice and sharp on the face. Good one.

Now that's getting in tight!
Colors really work, DOF & exposure are spot on, what more to say?
Great shot.

Wow, fantastic. The yellow of the insect works well against the blue/mauve. Focus is great, shame the antennae arent in focus too, though. 9

Wonderful blend of colors. I love the focus here...with the left eye staring right out of the photo. Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow! Beautiful colors! Such a refreshing shot of a subject that has been done over and over again. Only thing that I really hate is that border. This pic stands out without it. I hope this at leasts places in the top five, my fav so far in the challenge. Great job!

The soft lavender flower background gives this image a stunning effect. Very well done.

This photo is astonishing! How did you have the time to prepare this shot? perhaps the bee is dead!

Excellent Shot, good colors and detail
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2003 06:32:37 AM
I wouldn't have penalized you if a little more of the flower is also in focus (though I know the literal ones would have royally damaged your nice macro with sub scores).

The DOF makes this photo even more interesting 9

Going for a ribbon!!!! Perfect capture, well done. You've got a winner here - 10.

Very striking, looks like it's about to break though my monitor! Very effective dof, really makes it come alive. Lovely colours and saturation. Was it alive? 9

This is one of the strongest insect macros I have seen recently. As with all insect macros, the visibility of the fine detail is extremely important, and you definitely captured that well here. The other element of this photo that really strikes me is the complementary colors. I can't recall seeing that in any insect macros that I have come across recently. To me, that is the single strongest element of this photo. The colors are simply meant to be displayed together.

Great shot and Kudos :) = 10
