Have you received my emails? I can't remember if this was the one you sent or not. What a great score! This is a beautiful photo even if it has a bug in it lol. Excellent macro. Congrats on your new 2nd PB!

Difficult to stand out in this challenge of such high quality, but you've managed it.

really good details - the yellow on top of yellow on top of yellow may be just a bit much - and the upper right yellow leaf/ object is a bit of distraction

Definitely shallow, but there seems to have been some detail loss. The over-all yellow cast to the image isn't my favorite either.

Opened this up again, and yeah, now I remember why I want to worship you.

Fairly astounding detail in that eyeball! I like the color palette and the motion blur in the wing, too.

Beautiful colors, light, and focus. I really like the way the colors of the bee's face match the flower.

love the shot and the tones, only thing that troubles me is the composition as it just seems awkward for some reason... but still 8
