    Derek get in a bit closer , With the gx you can be nearly touching the flowers and get
    great shots.
    I like the upside down shot,Bees would be good but I have a phobia.... Eat too much honey and have aguilty conscience perhaps.

    all the best

    Derek I think I would reduce the contrast very slightly, desaturate a bit and add a little sharpening. I like the bee shot on the pink flower and the upside down shot the best.

    or you could play around with the hue and saturation and have a bit of fun.

    Derek, nicely done. Moving in closer is generally better. One thing that these camera do very well is Macro's.
    Fill the frame with one or two, and the DOF inherent in these will make for terrific shot
