Lift Off - Allen Hogan
It is not often we see detailed photos of Bees but we have had a bounty of them in this competition. Photos of insects can be difficult and is a real challenge to do so successfully. This is a beautiful photo. it is nicely framed by the effective vignette , the appropriate depth of field has captured all the intricate details of the Bee and flowers, and the darker coloured background highlights the subject and is not distracting in any way. I love the large round eye with the highlight. Excellent work.
