Beautiful capture. The soft, light green background really sets this image apart from others. Good angle and capture of your subject.

Excellent macro. Works for me - 10.

Effective insect macro. I'd have liked a little more dof so that his rear is in focus. Love the eyes. The background works well. Shame about the brown on the leaves. 9

Not sure that such extremely shallow DOF serves this shot well - though it gives god depth to the image itself, it's just a bit much.

COngratulations, very good macro. I would have used a bit more aperture to get more of the bee in focus with the blury background. But it's a perfect shot. CONGRATULATIONS

Excellent macro suffers from excessive noise removal - The eyes are never this smooth [8]
