i was so excited about this shot coz i've never succeeded in getting a flying bee in focus before where the background etc worked too .. i wasnt overjoyed about the bee in the flower with his focus issues tho ..
this had a very bad start in the voting .. i think all the 4's and 5's were out in force early on & it wasnt till the last two days of voting that this climbed over 6 .. :)

Oh yeah. Knowing now what's behind these images (an ungodly amount of patience), this shot is awesome! you have the focus spot on and a great moment in time captured. 6.09? You have to be kidding!

I bet I have taken 5,000 photos trying to get a bee in focus in flight! This is no small accomplishment, and I think it is a fabulous macro! As always, Roz, your work is nothing short of spectacular!

Bumping to a 7 , overall the image is just a little too complicated If both bees were tack sharp then it would be a different story.

Very nice photo.
After taking a second look at this wonderful photo, I realized that It needed to be bumped up a notch.
It is simple, Beautiful, Yet full of detail as well as being a terrific capture.
You have also done an excellent job in choosing the matching Border for this particular photo.
