1. Your sense of humor shows on the title of your images.
2. Love the way you can see the transparency of the wings and the spike up hair on this bee.
2. I can see the flash on her behind :)
3. I am glad she did not turn around or otherwise you may have ended with more than an image.
4. Last but not least, congratulations.
