    its s nice shot, although(im not an insect macro photographer) but i think it would of been better to get the head of the bee in focus, not so much as his rear.

    Beautiful! You achieved something that is very difficult -- your DOF is right-on! Keep shooting! What lens/lighting did you use?

    Wow that is really great, i love the way you have the dome of the folwer reflected in the dome of the back of the bee, that for me is one of the hardest things to do in macro. great shot.

    Thanks. lens was a Zuiko 70-300mm and lighting was ambient overcast day ISO 200

    Thanks for all the comments. I used a little unsharp mask to pull the eye in focus a bit.
