Caught this bee in the flying away. No post done, probably needs a little cropping to bring out the moment.

I would have to agree on the cropping. You actually have a couple if really nice options. For the Stopped Motion III challenge, I think a crop to fill the frame with the flowe and the bee would have more impact. I do love the colors in the image, and the shallow DOF lends a nice Bokeh effect to your background.

I really like the soft blur of the bee's wings and the pick centers of the blossoms. It is what I find in small details like this that makes the image beautiful.

mmmm, almost but not total motion stoppage here....the right wing has motion blur.

nice idea, but the bee is going in the wrong direction. you probably could have framed this up a bit tighter (or cropped it in afterwards).

I think I would have cropped this a little tighter so more attention would be on the bee. Maybe a different angle would have helped also.

That bee doesn't have enough pollen on it to head home yet. ;^) Your image seems a little soft, although it could be this work monitor. Good luck in the challenge.
