Wow...that's perfect. I've tried it a few times when I had the opportunity but failed miserably.

Best Bee shot of the Bunch. As far as a critique, the 1 and only thing I could find that could have bene improved is if there was any way to reduce some of that blurred object in the upper right corner. If it was located just a hint more to the right where the blue sky was behind the tail of the Bee, it would be a 10. It's still got a solid 9 in my book.

6 - Oh - like the detail. Like the composition, colors and close crop. Difficult, but 'even sharper' (including more stop motion) and either the fore flowers and all bee in focus or else 'somehow' just the bee with the flowers a little 'softer' (including contrast), if that makes sense. Maybe a fraction more height compositionally at the top, not sure.
