The challenge description read: "Partnerships and teamwork are everywhere about us in nature and in human affairs; capture an image that shows a mutually beneficial relationship."

This image fits the description perfectly. I'm quite disappointed by its score. Most of the higher rated pictures basically just show two individuals - with no apparent mutually beneficial relationship. This picture captures the crucial moment in a truly mutually beneficial relationship beautifully. Technically it's also great, with perfect focus on the bee. Why would anyone give this a low rating or even a 1? I don't understand. Maybe people are not aware of the relationship between bees and flowers...

This is quite the shot! The timing is so precise, I'm impressed you were able to keep a focus that shapr of such a fast and mobile subject.

there is too much of this picture that is out of foucus which makes the background really distracting and it overcomes your subject which is too small.
