Incredible detail of this waspish creature. Amazing the way it appears to emerge out of the centre of the glowing flower ball.

Great macro, I am learning just how quick you have to be to come close to getting a shot like this.

Julie Brown from Indianapolis, Indiana, United States

Another nice close-up. I like the detail of the eyes and hairs. Bees move around so much, it is sometimes difficult to get them in the desired position.

Great, Chris. Remarkable approach as you used a macro of only 100 mm.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

Precise detail while still retaining that 'natural' look. That's the art and you have it nailed.
