    This is my technically my first attempt at macro photography. C&C are much appreciated.

    Also, if anybody knows exactly what flower and what insect are depicted here, please let me know :blushing:

    The insect is a bee, I dunno the flower.

    I like the soft focus you got on that flower.

    Did you crop this at all or just scale it down?

    Thanks for the comment, Bifurcator, much appreciated. This is a crop, but the original image wasn't really much bigger.

    Here's another image that I captured right after the one above (it seems that at this point the bee felt already sufficiently acquainted with the flower, and the foreplay was no more...).

    I'm pretty sure that's your standard run-of-the-mill honey bee. I could be wrong.

    BTW, great color in your flower. The bee also gives it a sense of action, even though its not moving. It helps differentiate it from all of those other flower shots.

    looks more like a wasp to me...bees are fatter and the abdomens are not that shape, i like the second one better, the wasp is more in focus and its a better perspective.
