Very bold beautiful colors to that flower, the bee almost gets lost in them. Excellent, excellent detail to this macro. Great job!

Nice colours but looks slightly out of focus to me. No real detail in the bumble bee. Would have been much better had you perhaps waited for specimen with a nice set of wings as this one has clearly seen the wars.

This poor bee looks as if it's been through some hard times: those shredded wings!
