That has to be one of the best titles I ever saw - Zen means different things to different people .. I like this shot and your creativity in naming it.

Case in point - one of the many definitions of Zen on the web - a Buddhist doctrine that enlightenment can be attained through direct intuitive insight

Meh. That's a bee. It's not zen to me. (+1 to Rhyme)

one of my pet peeves on macros of insects is that the eyes are in focus but nothing else (or some other part of the body). I really like being able to see the entire critter in focus. I love the detail of the entire bee on this.
