I would prefer a background with more interest & color, other than that, this is a great picture

Nice composition. The focus is a bit too soft for the foreground subject. Some unsharp mask might add a lot to this photo.

great image, the level of detail is wonderful, too bad there were too many photos like this one on the challenge.

very nice pic - good timing.

WOW! This is fantastic shot. the clarity the sharpness are right on. The coloring is a touch red to me and I wish the background was totally black, but I like. I love how you can see the texture on his wings. Great job. 9 cthenk

nicely done
07/19/2002 03:10:00 AM
good catch
07/19/2002 02:58:00 AM
super detail on the bee
07/18/2002 06:26:00 PM
A bit soft and the capture would had more impact had we been able to se the front of the Bee. Soft and lacking detail.
07/18/2002 02:15:00 PM
A touch dark, but otherwsie wonderful. I know you can't control the bee, but the face side is nicer to look at. (no downgrade) 9 Swash

nice detail, good focus
07/18/2002 08:29:00 AM
It is a shame bee is not looking at camera. Good effort.
07/18/2002 12:33:00 AM
I's nice to see someone else who likes flower shots.......Bees are difficult to shoot, yes?
07/17/2002 07:08:00 PM
very sharp and great colour
07/17/2002 06:01:00 PM
Too many bug photos...
07/17/2002 02:14:00 PM
This is the best bee shot I've ever seen! The color and sharpeness is fantastic.
07/17/2002 02:10:00 PM
Nice colors and capture. I like the dark space on the right. Gives it a balanced feel.
07/17/2002 12:33:00 PM
excellent composition. Nice colors--the yellow on the bee and in the flower, the black on the bee and the dark background.
07/17/2002 09:44:00 AM
I would like to see the front of that bee.
07/17/2002 06:42:00 AM

Lovely macro
07/16/2002 11:51:00 PM
This picture didn't strike me at first, but it's really grown on me. I wish the bee were in a different position, but can I possibly complain about that? Amazing detail, great colors. Good job.

Good detail, color, composition.
07/16/2002 07:05:00 PM
i would like to have seen a little better depth of field..but still a nice pic.
07/16/2002 04:41:00 PM

shy bee
07/15/2002 11:54:00 PM
beautiful colors and focus. I think a side view of the bee would have been better but I understand that she probably had no intention of posing for you. Great shot! 9 Lisa

Fabulous! Only word appropriate!

Great focus and well done.
07/15/2002 03:45:00 PM
Nice bee.
07/15/2002 02:50:00 PM
Best bee of the bunch.
07/15/2002 02:00:00 PM
This is a really nice macro. I wish the bottom center of the flower was a bit more in focus as well and the bee was shown from the side or front/face but it's still a GREAT photo. = 8 Shiiizzzam

Great color! I hate bees, but this is an awesome pic...he's very sharp
07/15/2002 01:13:00 PM
nice color!
07/15/2002 12:04:00 PM
Tote that barg, heft that bale, collect that pollen. It would have been better if the bee had those big tufts of pollen stuck ti its legs like I have seen on occasion. One of my top picks.

love the colors
07/15/2002 07:48:00 AM
Nice clear macro. I always wish for the frontside of a bee but know that it does not always happen that way.
07/15/2002 01:59:00 AM
Great bee shot... and nice composition too.
07/15/2002 01:12:00 AM
The color is beautiful. Wonderful details.
