when i see pictures like this it makes me go insane thinking that i will never take such a thing, for lack of skill, a good camera, and fear of beeing stung. Awesome job. Going in my favorites. Congrats on 3rd.

Beautiful photo! Incredible detail. A little more in focus detail in the flower would have been great (depth of field), but I love that the background is completely out of focus. With a moving subject like this, you've done a great job! Well done!

Wow great macro work. You can actually see the grains of pollen on the body of the hornet (wasp?)!

I think this one will definitely get a ribbon...Great job on the focus and depth of field. Yellow is well represented with this photo.

I hope that bad boy was frozen. Great color saturation; nice composition.

One of my favourites this week. Great colours, not so many but OK. Focus and cropping are good. I like the composition too. Very well done. Good luck!

  Photographer found comment helpful.

this one is the best so far :)

Very nice! Lots of great detail. Strong yellow feel, the pollen on the wasp adds to the detailed wow! If anyone complains about your DOF or the antenna out of focus, just blow them off (it's just not possible!!) GREAT PHOTO! Easy 10!

Great macro
  Photographer found comment helpful.

You have done an absolutely fantastic job capturing this, in my opinion. The crisp focus of the wasp? against the out of focus background draws my attention back to the center of the frame. Very nice! --10

Beautiful macro, and a wonderful capture of the insect. Can't seem to guess its identity though, good job.

Superb! 10

Can't figure out what "bugs" me abouit this one... Oh, yes, maybe it is that it is just one bang up good image. Itfeatures only one color, but what content!

How do you get those little buggers to pose so nice? :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/07/2003 10:04:14 PM
Excellent macro shot. Having a bit more space around the flower/wasp would probably make the color contrast more interesting, but a very good shot none the less.

This is one of my favorites for this week. I love the use of color and I really love the subject matter. Whatever lens you used for this one has great bokeh. The DOF looks pretty good on this picture but it might be better if you had just a little more (maybe 1 stop smaller on the aperture?). The reason I say that is that the antennae look soft to me but the body looks great. I donít know what the rest of the picture looked like but it might be nice if you left a little more open space on the left side of the picture. I gave this one an 8.

Great focus on the bee/wasp. Some of the flower is a little blurry but may have been hard to avoid.

04/07/2003 02:26:41 PM
Great detail, you can see the yellow stuff from the plant all over his body. That is one messy wasp. :)
Good capture.
