I quite like the idea of the "where's wally" style find-the-bee, but the rest of the image is just unremarkable, and the out-of-field flowers to the left serve as a distraction rather than a feature.

I'll take your word for it that there's a bee in here someplace, but at this distance it's hard to tell. Cropping to the sharpest portion of the picture would be a great improvement - there's a nice shot in here, but it needs to be teased out.

In my eyes it would have abeen a great shot if you really tightly cropped and got the bee more prevalent.

I'm confused. It's called "the bee", but I can't see a bee. I can't really see the purple link either.

nice title :)

Very busy. Not enough purple. The blurry flowers on the left really distract from the image. I can hardly even see the bee...

This really reminded me of the Where's Waldo books of my youth. I really enjoyed the yellow against the purple, along with the inventiveness of the shot.

Sort of like the kids story, Where's Waldo ... I'm looking for the bee but darned if I can find it. Nice photo. Shallow DOF leading to the blurred part on the left distracts me a bit.

You lost me. And I lost the bee.

The bee is real hard to see, perhaps a closer crop would have worked better and that would have taken out the out of focus area out on the left side also.
