Brian, this is gorgeous and vibrant!! Love the bold color - and you exposed it perfectly (it's so easy to oversaturate colors like this). The detail is excellent, which is good because it's a fascinating flower to explore. The bug is delightful! Who knew they came in that color? Really well done - in my opinion, it really should have scored higher, too.

What strange and intriguing stamens! Your choice of DoF works well. Surprisingly, the insect appears incidental to the image, and I suspect it would work just as well without it; indeed, the colour of the insect does rather clash with the vibrant green of the flower parts!

This just looks like something I'd see on another planet. Crazy.
