great lighting, especially how it reflects on the wings of the fg bee's wing

Lovely leading lines, gorgeous blues and yellows that compliment each other, crisp and clean the sharpness of the details is brilliant, good DOF, well done

3 - I think it is a Water Lily.. but I could be wrong.. Nice capture with the bees, although a little dark/contrasty, in my opinion. The black background seems unnatural with the bees (ie: not a studio shot, but again.. I could be wrong (apologies in advance if so)).
