In The Sun's Face
I love what detail you managed to capture, unfortunately it seems to be only the top half of the Bee Fly and his wings. I believe a different angle where you could have captured the face would be much more pleasing to the eye.
You already stated that the DOF is shallow and having the legs and flower in focus would definitely be a big plus.
I really like the exposure, there are no hot spots whatsoever, and even the tiny hairs on it's body are illuminated perfectly. The clean blurred BG is very attractive with the green and brown splotched coloring.
Mike, I continue seeing improvement in your photos, so I believe you really want an honest critique and not just a lot of fluff.
