The color simply jumps out and grabs the viewer; pulling the eye into detail of the yellow center of the flower. The frame work around the piece is nicely done as well.

I adore, which delicacy in your dévelopmment of the photo. Splendid precision of the focus, with DoF perfect, all that made that you bring us directly where you wish it. I feel “bee” when I see this photograph... ;)

Anita, the detail you acieved in the pollen center is incredible. It seems to glow with a metalic sheen. Such an incredible image.

I've been drawn back to this image several times this week: Pixim's got it right -- you've given the viewer the sense of what it would be like to be a bee coming into a pollen treasure trove.
