Great photo, shared 1st in my list. :)
Very nice balance of all the yellows, great composition and great use of wide aperture.

Great macro. I would have liked the whole of the front 'ball' in shot, but apart from that this is really well done. Fantastic detail on the bee & flower.

Something profound should be said about this shot, but I'm to dumbfounded to think of it. One great picture.

Perhaps the bee should see his barber and have a little more taken "off the top". Doesn't he know that crew cuts went out years ago? :)

You must be very persistent to have gotten this shot. Every thing is just right. Good Job!

Technically perfect picture. I would give it a perfect score if the bee was standing out a little more (background is also yellow behind it). 9

Good focus and use of dof. The bee is a little too close to the top of the frame IMO. I like the green and yellow colors but think the bee would stand out better against something other than more yellow. Nice capture. Interesting flower. 7

Great colors but the bee almost seems lost in it all. I guess bees don't exactly listen to us when we ask them to move to another plant, do they?! I would like to see a slight bit more depth of field to place the bee's behind in focus.

Great use of DOF here, lovely colours and detail, perhaps the post processing is a little heavy

Great macro, nice detail on the bee. Would have liked the entirety of the circle for the first flower...

very nice colors

Sweet success for this winning photo. Perfect bug and bud focus. The background is blurred well with no annoying harsh highlights. Two basic colors tightens up the theme of your image and adds well to the bright mood of your shot. A first class macro shot that adds real pizzaz to those typical static flower shots. So when do you start on the payroll for National Geographic?

Wonderful macro. Great DOF. Fantastic bee. Can see the hair on his body. That's a good photo. Hasn't gotten any pollen on his legs yet. This should score in the top 10. Great job.

Excellent capture. The clarity is brilliant as well as the dof. I really like the warm colours. The bee adds a lot of interest. I also like how you have the focus slighly off centre and it's not smack bang in the centre of the image. I really hope this one places. So for such a great effort here's a 10 for you. This image deserves recognition. Well done and GL.
