Sorry to see you scored so low. You were in my top 15. I thought your photo was different than the typical bug shot. This has a lot of character. The exposure was a little off and your DOF might have been a little too tight for my tastes, but I liked it a lot.

Nice detailing. I even like that you can see the window of the building behind. Sets up a nice story. Great focus on the buzzing guy. 7
