    Very nice, #3 is my favourite and #4 looks a little washed out.

    I especially like No. 3 as well - i love the way the bee's wings echo the shape of the petals and give the image a semi-balance.

    #3 is gorgeous... you might clip it a little bit to adjust the placement of the flower and the bee in the frame, but it's a great capture. :)

    Another vote for No. 3, the shapes of the petals are nice from that angle

    #2 is too busy, the blurry stems in from of the flower are very distracting, #3 is really good but could have used some fill flash

    Seconded.

    Also in some instances getting even closer would have made for more dramatic shots.

    As the name suggests, it will fill in the light a bit to give a more balanced overall photograph with light in all the right places.

    using a flash outdoors to fill in the shadows a bit more.

    Overexpose the camera +1/2 of a stop and underexpose the flash by -1/3 stop. This is a good ratio for outdoor fill..

    #3 is good, but like others have said, fill flash.

    #1 is boring, and #2 is a bit more interesting, but #4 is something I'd just delete. That's not an insult though, since I delete LOTS of my own photos. ;)
