It looks like there's a warm glow inside the flower, hypnotising the bee. Very lovely colours.

Though the bug is in sharp focus the flower is a bit distracting since the centre is very bright and draws the eye.

Wow! Great colors. It looks like the bee is descending into a fire pit.

I am fascinated by the way the center of the flower appears to be illuminating the approaching bee. Neat shot.

Magnificent. I like the glow of the yellow against the purple.

Of all the flower pics in this conetest this is by far the most creative! Great job on thinking outside the box - the flying bee says it all! (10)

Looks like the inside of the flower is a blazing inferno. I like the lighting and the bees are a definite bonus.
