thanks, all these were shot on a k100d btw with either the kit 18-55mm lense or my tamron 70-300mm

a few were shot with raynox dcr-250 2.5x macro-converter lense on atop of either of the other two

thanks for all the compliments and comments! framing is one of the most important things in photos in my opinion, and it's nice to know that you liked that aspect.

*Do you think it was wise to make the b&w picture so? i thought for those particular ones it didnt really stick out unless it was colorless.

Number 4 there really grabs me the most although they are all just wonderful. Excellent eye for composition. The quarter sunflower with the bee is a 'gotta frame', and number 5 with the desaturated leaves but color (stems?) is stunning.
