Found this little guy on the bottom petal of a flower when all of a sudden he just flip himself over to the side hanging by one leg and cleaning himself with the other five. It was quite amazing to view. Don't expect this to do well in this challenge even though there was plenty of action going on in his cleaning process.

the bee is well done, but you played it too safe and stopped down more than you needed. the background is too sharp.

great detail on the bee!! it doesnt seem to work as a photo though, the composition is quite strange - the top half of the photo takes away from a really good bottom half. And the vertical orientation makes me want to turn my head sideways. Still you get a good score just for how hard bees are to photograph.

REALLY great close-up, but I don't necessarily see action.

Great Macro. I'm sure some people wont see the action, but the bee appears to be suspended in the air, i like it.

Interesting angle...did you rotate this or is he just hanging out.

Nice colors and DoF too. 8

this is a strange looking shot. the position and frozen state make it look dead. nice dof and sharpness though. still good.

Wow...how fast was the shutter speed? I guess we'll have to wait to find out!
