Macro using DCS460 camera, in direct sunlight. Image cropped, levels adjusted, neatimage noise reduction. This little bee (5/16 inch long) really does have blue eyes! Note the critter has his pollen sac near full. The cactus blossom he rests upon lasts for only one day.

That is an amazing eye. I love the flecks of pollen everywhere. Wish the backgound were darker to contradct with the bright petals. Good detail on the bee.

If this wasnt done by macro jacko its as good as one of his. I tried something like this yesterday and i know how hard it is. Great job 10

Maybe this would have been better suited in the Purple challenge? The light area on the left is somewhat distracting; maybe a tighter cropping would help.

Great execution...not certain about how it relates to the subject of the challenge

I don't know if this bee really says freedom to me (then again, I had a hard time with this subject too), but it's an awesome picture!
