    Well I really like the pink flower with the fly on it, but I think I would like it more if it was the bee on the flower with that angle and the bee facing the same way the fly is. I really like the picture but find it really hard to "really" like it because it's a fly haha

    Well done.

    Honestly? The images didn't excite me too much- subjects weren't interesting, overall... keep in mind I'm generally bored silly by flower pictures. May just be me.

    That being said, I didn't care for the composition much- cropped off more than I would have expected in some, kind of overly centered composition in many. (look up the Rule of Thirds... it may give you some ideas)

    The depth of field is pretty extreme in many of these as well- throwing petals out of focus a mere inch or less from where you are actually in focus. That seems kind of a shame, and generally isn't the norm for pictures like this.

    What the heck is with the "do fish get thirsty" thing?

    Good shots, but you need to work on cropping and composition. Also, some of these shots look rather unsaturated. Bump the saturation levels a bit.

    Nice macros, all. The two that caught my attention: #2 brings out nature's precision craftsmanship. The soft-n-furry bee in #4 blends nicely with the flower's hairy petals.

    I might be wrong here but I'm pretty sure they are saying you have cropped TOO much.

    You can "crop" with your lens or crop with a graphics tool- the end result is the same, except in the first case you have more megapixels. If someone says they think you cropped too much, and you didn't do it in a tool, then next time consider allowing more of the scene to be visible through the lens when you take the shot.
