I'm normally quite irrationally terrified of these things, but I seem to get much braver as soon as I have a camera in my hands, and will happily do anything as long as I might get a decent shot.

This image has more impact than most of these types of shots that I've seen. The colour of the flower really adds drama to the bees activity. The bee looks almost sinister against the delicate flower. The depth of field is spot on to put the attention where the action is.

If that bee had any purple on him I would have given you a 10 that is a great shot. but I think the main subject since its so perfect is the bee, I really dont even notice that the flower is purple

Bee appears a little soft on the focus but I know how hard it is to capture these little suckers! (I had to use a dead one for my self portrait amongst other reasons and potential threats of handling a live bee). Still, even the flowers seem a bit soft. Excellent composition, only gripe is the focus.
