Post Challenge:
Cool, a top 10. I was just playing around taking shots of bees when I realised that if I could get one in flight it might do ok in this challenge (kind of like hummingbirds for those of us that don't have hummingbirds). This is a very severe crop, almost 1:1.

Ohmy! What a fabulous photo! I have chased bees around I bet a total of a hundred hours, but it is so HARD to get them in focus while they are in flight. BRAVO!! This is absolutely flawless. And congratulatios on 7th place -- but 6.2??? Way too low! :)
