I have never cares so much for a macro. The bee is caught in such a deep embrace, revealing the desperation of its need, and everything is soft and grainy like an old movie. 10

A bit grainy and sort of the wrong end for an interesting closeup of the bee.

Lovely muted colours in this shot and an incredible up close image of the pollen. Wish it were a bit sharper though.

nice capture and great detail to be able to see the pollen but the flowers colors seem to be way over saturated.

Composition: 4 - Its too centred in my opinion.
Technical: 3 - It looks like you've cropped a lot to get this close, and the sharpness and image quality has suffered.
Creativity: 3 - I would have liked a further out crop so that we could see more of the surrounding flower, which would separate it from similar bee shots.
Appeal: 3

Overall Calculated Average Score: 3

Well done, it's not easy to capture a bumble bee - lots of patience unless you're extremely lucky.
