I'm hoping to leave comments on as many photo's in this challenge as possible... out of (currently) 1113 images, I gave 92 of them an 8. Your image was one of those 92, placing you well within the top 10% for this challenge.

There are some very good bug shots in this challege, and this is one of them. I have scored one or two a little higher than this though. There seems to be quite a bit of noise in this image which is stopping me from rating it any higher as it's slightly distracting. However, it's still a really nice shot, with focus in just the right place.

Good luck for a strong finish in this challenge.

wow love the detail
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 12:00:41 AM
I don't know if this is purposely tilted or if this is the angle it was, but I like it. Excellent focus and processing. The solid background looks like either paper or recolored sky, but it does match the leaf well making the bee stand out more.

Nice and close... might be a bit over sharpened (see eye and middle leg's blown areas have artifacts?)?
