this little bee has had a very bumpy ride in the free study ..
started at 7 and then took a real dive down to 5.5 ...
when i entered it i was thinking it could get about 6.2, or more if i was lucky, so i'm very happy with this score .. :)

I think this is an outstanding shot, and definitely in your comfort zone. You are simply a master at taking macro photos of insects. The strengths in this shot are the vibrate colors, and the shallow DOF which really focuses the attention on the hungry bee.

7 - Mmm, exquisite detail on the flower center. A more refined crop, especially at the top, makes this a stronger image in my opinion.
