    The focus seem a bit soft in both, did you shoot these with a macro or telephoto? #1 seem a little blowout; I like the light in #2 more

    Or maybe the focus point is not emphasis a strange enough subject point IMO. Maybe more on the head or stingers

    I like 'em, number 2 especially. Focus looks fine on both to me.

    I'm so jealous of these types of macros. I just wish that I was capable of such feats. Maybe someday I will get a macro lens. Nice captures.

    Nicely done. I prefer the second shot as well... it doesn't have that blown out area on the left of the flower, and I like how you can see more easily how covered the bee is with pollen.

    I'm jealous, as I can't do these types of macro shots. (Btw, were you using flash? Looks like a flash reflection on the bee in both shots.)

    Okay, hmm, a joke. Maybe something about the population explosion, as there are far too many sons of bees around?
