Mike F. Anderson level-classic June 05, 2006

Janine, I like this second image of a bee in flight because of the larger included surroundings that add more context to the scene. Even though you probably could have cropped in for a larger size bee, I'm glad you chose the composition you did because I personally feel like it completes the whole scene and story. Great job! #2855099
