I hope this does well, i happen to really like this image. Not alot to say, what you see is what you get :P cropped, desated background using channel mixer, did 100% blue channel with red channel set over it to 50% opacity, then i red channel for the flowers, and blue for everything else. Adjusted Contrast, Used Burn to make the background darker. Bumped the Hue&Sat of the bee to bring out the colors, slight burn on the black stripes on the bee. Resided, did USM twice, saved for web.

Excellent shot but doesn't emphasis the "selective" part of the desaturation thingie as well as it could have. (6)
