That bee was looking right at you, hope you didn't make him mad!

Nice detail on the bee! Good motion blur on the wings. Nice colors and composition.

Tied as my highest rated image of the challenge. The moment was captured at the perfect moment. The image is sharp where it counts, and the out-of-focus back gound is wonderful. Personally i would have cropped it into a vertical to (1) stand out from the crowd since most macros for some reason are landscapes and (2) Remove the flower gap in the lower right hand corner. Of course it is also fine the way it is. Great work.

Nice colors. Good capture and fairly well focused. Interesting perspective in a challenge full of simular shots.

9 - Very good. Nice and clean, good 'capture'. Good colors. Good macro. With a tighter crop, if possible, would be better for me.

Lightening up the bottom of the bee to pull out some detail could have really helped to finish this photo.

I might have cropped it closer to the bee and verticle. Nice though

Very nice, love the colors and great focus. I scored this up because the bee is in flight. No way to pose a dead bee in this picture.
