Everyone was bugging me to enter so I decided to take my macro lens out on Sunday. I found a few hover flies, but it was too windy. I'll stick with this entry even if the exposure sucks. I was hoping for something more original ... maybe for Macro VI.

Tied as my highest rated image of the challenge. Razor sharp where it counts. Excellent subjects (Beauty & the beast) and flawless capture and post processing. Great work.

Nice colors, focus and texture. Interesting perspective in a challenge full of simular shots.

I really like the placement of the fly in the frame. I also like the angle you shot this from. Great shot!

The closeness of the bee (?) is surreal. Fantastic shot!

Just beautiful. The focus (on the face of the creature) and the composaition are just perfect! I'm giving it an 8.

8 - Nice. For me, perhaps a slightly different angle, maybe to get it's wings.
