I hate to be picky, but three are insects, the other a bug. Lovely soft background and DOF.

I'm not a technical photographer by any means. There's something about the color of the flowers that looks odd to me though. They look kind of....dirty gray.

Really beautiful photo. Great composition and DOF.
I count six bug, maybe 7. Maybe not focused as many voters would like, but it sure is pretty.

It is a little soft and some of the bugs are a little lost. Nice idea though.
