Great shots, I must have missed these earlier when browsing the forums.

As I was scrolling through these shots, I thought #1 was spectacular, until I got down to #4. The combination of lighting, focus, and camera angle make this truly a wonderful shot. I really like the feel of the texture of the flower conveyed by the slight curvature of the petals and the differential lighting on each surface. Really a nice shot.

The fly? I like him; he adds to the realism of the shot. However, I have a somewhat similar photograph of a daffodil in which a large ant is crawling across a petal. When I show the photo to non-photographers, the general comment is "It's too bad that bug spoiled your picture."

Lovely shots, Bill. The lighting and color is what still-life painters strive for.
