So worthy of the win!
Beautiful work D!
I truly like the clarity and sharpness of this busy bee.
Superb DOF and fine white balance control in the bright sun.
Nice work!

This is such an incredible macro shot, congratulations on winning the contest!

It's so perfectly sharp and the contrast between the bee and the purple flowers with the lovely blur in the background is really beautiful.
A really nice composition and colour tones!

This is an extraordinary capture. How the Bee clings to the flower is impressive. Your photo has good depth and is perfect focused and exposed. The realism of color and the sharpness of detail are impressive. Even the hairs at the head and the body are pin-sharp. The soft purple light around the Bee amplifies the insect. The be is excellent placed within the frame. The composition is balanced.

Wow, what a close up bumblebee shot in such a close up position, that we can admire him in such details we can never see in nature - your presentation is wonderful as your frame choice is excellent, your cropping choice is perfect, and your close up is sooutstanding that the other flowers just become the colors energies in the background
A super harmonious and excellent presentation with a fantastic initial impression and stunning content, well reacted, fantastic angel and position, awesome result
