This is only day 1, but I am so thrilled how well my little bee is doing.

I know this is a bit ... well, not sure what you call it, but I put a spoonfull of honey out for the bees to say thanks for being such great models :-)

OH WOW ... I am speechless. 7,2 ... just when I thought I would never get anything above a 6,5 :-). A PB by far!
And to finish in the ribbons in this challenge is truly amazing. Thank you everyone for great comments and for your votes.
Don't know what happened to all the "1" voters, they must have gone on holiday ;-)

I was very happy with the picture when I submitted it. When I then looked at all the wonderful, wonderful images in this challenge I did not think the little bee could hold her own. Amazing pictures, truly (I think we need many more Macro challenges :-)). What an honor to finish so well - Thank you.

A Bee shot? How boring. Open the thumbnail.. WOW! This is done exceptionally. Looks like you could cuddle the little critter with those soft fluffy hair. Well done and congrats on the Ribbon

Congrats on the yellow, and your new PB. Excellent shot. I love the fuzzy fur. I was just leaving my comment when rollover occurred but I'd already voted and gave you a 9.

I can see her tongue! Love the DOF and detail, and she stands out beautifully against that cool background. Very, very well done.
