I know this has been put in another forum as a test but I'd like some feedback.

I like your photo Good macro shot, only thing that disturb me is that cropping. It would be better if that flower would fit in the photo.
Great job!

Is this Better. I have to put one of these two in my photo club competition next month. Which is the better choice??? I chose the one I'd cropped in more for the close effect.

i prefer the second one, but a bit more closely croped to get rid of the second flower at the left bottom corner and the leaves at the right.

This was a difficult shot to get. the flower is about an inch wide and no more than 4 inches from the ground. these flowers are classed as weeds here in Aussie. I had the camera set macro and was squatting down among the bees (Im allergic to them as well!!!) and my biggest problem was trying to shoot with my jack russell terrier pouncing on and trying to eat the bees so as you can imagine, this was a lucky shot
