I like the pollen. Something about the photo is throwing me off though. Can't quite place it. Something about the color is making me think of 70s shag carpet.

Cool! I was wondering at first if you pulled the wings off--I was really glad to look closely and see at least the left wing :)

I like how the things are like stars shining. Regardless of the title tryign to help, I want to see the wings. (not voting)

No, just wings that are beating too fast for the shutter speed. :)

Pretty cool photo, very sharp with lots of detail.

excellent processing and capture...but I've seen bees before (you still got an 8 from me...)

Ah, the ol' bee gathering pollen macro. Countless examples on DPC. Probably very few without wings, but this one isn't really without wings either. I'd give it a 3 out of 10 on the uniqueness meter. The centered composition doesn't really do anything for me either.

Very beatutiful... Cliché... the title saved a low score, because i didnt realize the wingless thing at first sight...

Nice use of shutter speed to remove the wings. Very original.
Nice macro too!

Granted, I can't remember seeing a wingless version of this critter on dpc (can't say I've searched lol). I'm loving the right half of this but for me the left half lets things down a little. Maybe its the very shallow dof but his/her body is a little blown out and oof and I think the left background could do with a little neat image. Overall I quite like the image but sadly, for me it doesn't make me say 'WOW' Good luck :)

Great macro! I did not catch the fit to this challenge until I read your title - since there are many bug macros. But with your title, I understand where you were going with it. Great photo and great capture!

Seems to have one wing! Great attempt. I like the DOF, great color, and well focused. But for me, the subject is well represented on DPC. 4
