Pretty Scary for someone that has a fear of Bees. Took a lot of patience but I think it paid off. The flower and bee were in the sun, the background in the shade

Cropped, with adjustments to contrast and color.

An interesting composition, but the bug being out of focus and the blown out areas on the petals detract from this.

the image is over exposed.

Beautifully framed. Not sure whether it is a deliberate technique but the lighting seems a tad harsh IMO. Great shot otherwise. (Not voting)

You'll probably get pinged a lot for the blown out highlights, but I quite like them.

Unfortunately overexposed... a lot of details of the bug and flower are lost

Very nice composition. Would kind of like more detail, but then the bee might not blend in as well.

Nice composition and leading lines make me look down to the bee. Just a tad too much on the higlights.

This is a tough shot to get with the bright sun on the pedals like it is.

Appears out of focus???

Nice composition and a good find for the challenge. Just a bit over exposed.
