Awesome detail on the bee and the foremost of the flowers and buds. Love the DOF. The bee, and you, made a very wise color choice and purple and green is one of my favorite color combos! I might be wishing the bee's wings were both totally in focus, but that adds to the depth of this. Great shot. Good Luck!

Nice photo. Was the bee this dull? ie the Yellow? I guess there are lots of species of bee ;)

WOW, yes I actually use that. I can not believe how sharp this photo is, still staring at it in disbelief and the colors are just so vivid. I'll be going back to get more info on how this was done (Camera settings that is) because I've tried and just can't seem to get these buggers to sit still. This photo deserves a 10 without a question!

Nice shot of the bee, I think you could effectively crop it some more.

Nice choice of contrasting flower color to bee. Exceptionally fine quality.

Great capture. DOF is good. The only thing lacking to me is it could use al little more contrast.

Very nice. I just found this on my 2nd sweep of the challenge. Great detail. The focus is just right for me. Lots of textural variations to keep it interesting. 9

Wow!, might be one of the best pictures I have seen. I hope it doesn't get marked down for a bug picture. This got my only 10. Well done.

Great saturation ... excellent purple which isn't the easiest color to get right ... very nice balanced light and good dof.
