3rd place
Honeybee #31 by ryzst

LakeMichigan: Great shot, Russ .
Wonderful color and dof.

ryzst: Thank you Marsha and Lyn.

I'm very pleased that you and others liked the picture. As I recall, it was a quick, impulsive shot and I only got one. Then the bee took off like a rocket.

4th place
Ladybug by Eubeen

palral: First of all, I love the composition and perspective. Most people would have rotated the shot to get the bug "right side up" whatever that would have been. I mentioned your photographer's eye before, and you "done good" with it this time. Just think what you could be doing with two eyes.

A little short on the depth of field, but the majority of the little beetle is well focused although I wouldn't go so far as to say that it's sharply focused. Nice use of lighting, but I'm sorry to hear that you tossed her out into the cold where she was immediately eaten by a hungry bat.

10 on the composition and perspective. 6 on the focus. 8 on the colors. All and all, a 7.5-7.785.

5th place
