This image of a bumblebee was taken in one of the lovely parks just on the outskirts of Nashville, TN. This animal didn\'t mind me kneeling down right above the flower it was interested in, going about its way while I took a number of shots. Flash, no tripod. Applied changs: Levels, unsharp mask, crop to size. (The full-size image has much more detail, if you would like a copy, please let me know.)

I'm not sure that I would include necessity with indulgence, but I'm not going to dwell on definitions. I learned a new word, apian. That has to be worth an 8 all by itself. Good picture too, btw. 8

I wouldnt say that's a luxury. Im prety sure bees do that so they can continue living.

Beautiful close-up!

I like the somewhat unusual-seeming colors in this ... nice macro.

Nice macro. Some extra colour saturation would really help the impact of this image, and some USM to bring out the texture of the hair. Great shot though!

Not entirely sure this is an indulgence but they do hoard it :). Nicely done. 7

I would have opened the framing up a bit. Good shot though.
