this is a very beautiful shot, although i don't see what's so odd about a bee w/ a flower...

Beautiful shot. The colors are tremendous.

Good flower macro, great colours and sharp focus. I've got a feeling it was shoehorned into the challenge though.

Spectacular capture... The bold colors and lines are just wonderful.

Beautiful picture, great detail and sharpness, nicely done. Not sure if a bee and flower together are really that "odd" though.

this is an amazing macro, but bee's and flowers go toghter there is nothing odd about that.

A nice capture with lots of tone. The crop looks a little awkward to me but perhaps it's just a personal prefference. Nonetheless, a good job... :)

This is a beautiful photo but I'm not sure it fits the challenge. There's nothing more natural than a bee on a flower, it isn't odd at all.
03/02/2006 12:43:22 PM
nice pic

You pulled my heartstrings with a bee... they are so plump and fuzzy. Great flower, the colors are amazing! Great macro, congrats.

Nice pic but in my opinion it doesn't fit the challenge.

Amazing shot, Very eyecatching!

Wow - I like the burst of color!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

stunning shot that would win in any other challenge...but the topic was ODD couple, not COMPLIMENTARY couples...birds and flowers go together, they are not odd.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2006 03:51:12 AM
Love the colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A gorgeous photograph indeed, but is it really and "odd couple"? Bees and flowers are nature and spend lots of time together.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/28/2006 05:34:49 PM
This is a very beautiful shot ! So how is it odd.... ? Ok I think I get it; they are alike, so not so common.... right ? :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/28/2006 04:13:19 PM
Great photo, I love the colours and clarity.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/28/2006 03:48:01 PM
Nice photo, but these two things go hand in hand. A bee needs a flower and the flower needs the bee. Odd couple?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/28/2006 12:06:02 PM
This is such a nice shot, but doesn't seem like an "odd couple"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/28/2006 01:58:10 AM
beautiful photo... but it's not odd...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 08:53:41 PM
Really good picture, but what's odd with this combination?
02/27/2006 08:24:41 PM
Hmmm.... you entered this in "odd couple", yet I see a "perfect match". Very beautiful photo, though.
02/27/2006 04:02:34 PM
Great shot...im just not sure how it fitsa in the challenge
02/27/2006 03:09:43 PM
A very nice macro shot, but Bees and Flowers go together. Maybe I need to shift paradigms?
02/27/2006 02:28:23 PM
I like the composition and colors. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 02:04:50 PM
The perfect couple ... have a hard time seeing the oddness. The colours are great although the flower overwhelms the bee.
02/27/2006 01:17:24 PM
Nice macro, but not really "odd" in any way.
02/27/2006 12:41:08 PM
I wasn't going to comment on this image but it's bugging(no pun intended)me so bad I have to. Flowers and bees are a perfect match. Bees gather nectar and pollen enabling plants to reproduce. One doesn't exisit with out the other. Although it is a wonderful photo with vibrant colors and clarity, it doesn't qualify as an odd couple. Maybe if it was one of those hybrid flowers that produce no pollen then it might be considered an odd couple but I doubt that was your intent.

Ok. . you did it: you impressed me with a bug and a flower shot! Trust me. Not that easy to do! This is awesome! Good luck!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 08:27:11 AM
A wonderful photo, I'm just not sure where the odd couple part comes in. They seem to compliment each other beautifully.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 08:20:51 AM
Nice shot, however, I wouldn't consider a bee and a flower an odd couple.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 02:20:58 AM
Very, very nice photo. Not an odd couple, however. They're literally made for each other. Scoring low in spite of the fact that the image is very, very good, because otherwise we'd end up with every challenge a free study.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 02:20:12 AM
This is an ABSOLUTELY Awesome photo, but seems that they are not much of an ODD couple... just an ordinary couple. Congratulations on a beautiful shot though.

lovely capture

thought I have already voted this a 10 earlier but now it's back on my face to re-vote? is this a duplicate image? hmm...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great photo. Love the color and it's really sharp. My only problem is this is as far away from odd as you can get.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 12:48:53 AM
Nice image but not really odd.....as it is a natural accurance.
