I am by no means a professional photographer...in fact, I might not even qualify as an amateur, but I was floored by how these pics of the bee and flower came out.  I don't know if you can tell it here, but on the first pic you can see the lines in his wings so crisp and clear.
Comments are always welcomed and appreciated!

Oh.my.gosh.  These pics are awesome.  How did you get close enough to take these photos?  Or do you have an awesome telephoto lens?  Not only can I see the lines in his wings, but I can also see the fuzz on his head.

What happens if you make them bigger?  Do they remain crisp?  If they do, you should make larger photos and matte and frame them.

Maybe you don't qualify as a professional photographer, but these are really good pictures.  Well done.

Thanks so much !
I don't have a telephoto lens...in fact, these were taken with a run of the mill kodak easyshare camera.  That's part of the reason I was amazed they came out in such detail.  I just move very quietly among the flowers and try not to make any sudden moves...LOL. 

If I make them bigger, they stay crisp and clear.  I have considered having having them matted and framed along with a few pictures I caught of an anole (type of lizard) on a flower.

Then by all means, have them framed.  They look like gallery work.
