Brilliant photo here, really like the subject!...

The background colours, and the colour of the flower go well, these details add those few extra points for me. The only thing I would have liked to see was this a little sharper.

Well done! 10

8. I would have like to have seen a tighter crop, and more DOF.

How on earth did you manage this??!! The colors in the shot work very well together, and the dof directs the eye immediately to the main focus of the shot. I am anxious to see what kind of lens you shot this with.

'Closely' meets the challenge that's for sure! Nice job!

Awesome Shot! Awesome detail that you can even see the pollen on the little guy. I think this may be one of the top 3. Good luck with the challenge!!!

Top two. Sure nice shooting and fantastic color. I'm not too crazy about some of the blur on his back. It looks odd or smoothed. Still will get a ribbon and it's well earned. Nice work.

damn you people who live in places warm enough to still have bugs. or did you freeze one like jacko? anyway - this is great...similar to things done by the likes of Crabappl and quadrajet very successfuly in the past (if memory serves). love the crop - seems to comply with rule of thirds (though i hate rules)...colour is inviting, and the focus is spot on. I see this doing very well this week.
