Haven't seen many bachelor's buttons around here for some reason -- one of my favorite flowers and one I used to see often. Beautiful composition, colors and detail, Carol!

Judging by the condition of this bee's wings, it's most probably "middle aged". :o) Remarkable detail. Gorgeous bokeh. Your shots are making me want that 5D MKII more and more.... argh!

Uhmmm.... duh! I should pay more attention to detail :o) If I did, perhaps I could get macros like this! LOL! Great shot, and congrats on your finalist, Carol.
