what are the chances of using the same flower and the same placement as my photo!
At least you didn't have a butterfly...nice photo- TG

Great Macro, i think i have those flowers at my house! Well, now i know the name of them :-) Great photo and esp. nice colors. The background blurred out very nicely. I bet it was hard getting the fly to stay ;-) 9

I had to go back through the entries on the ones that I already voted on, cause this shot looked really familiar. Someone else did a shot with flowers that looked like this and had a butterfly on it. Weird. I like the detail in this one. Also the colors of those little flower things. This is a beautiful shot. I still don't know what kind of flowers those are. Good shot. 9

Great macro. Negative space is useful in this one to stand the flower. 7

This is one of my 10s for the week. It is an excellent insect shot. Great DOF, focus, and colors. ~indigo997

Nice contrasting colours.

So far one of my favorites! Great colors. Focus seems slightly soft on the fly, but better than I've gotten! Good luck in the challenge! Grayce aka Gracious

honey fly? Never seen one over here - interesting - the green sets it off nicely - the fly is not entirely appealing to me however. 7 sgtpepper6344
