Very nice orchid specimen growing in its natural habitat.
I would probably crop a little off the right side and some off the bottom to emphasize more the lovely flower. I have always found that a diffuser is very useful in blocking out harsh light from the full sun. In doing so, I achieve a softer light that reveals more details when photographing flowers outdoors.

Nice Lupines with a notable background. Your contrasting mixture works very well.

Insects look great over a nice uniformly colored background. Insect details are nice and sharp.

Beautiful close-up of this magnificent Hymenoptera specimen. The green leaf BG really brings out the yellow and blue colors of the insect.

Most beautiful and unusually shaped flower. The color is magnificent and well captured with a good DOF.

The two kind of trees are very beautiful mixed together like this.

Interesting shot of a snake, (not on the ground). Indeed the focus is rather "soft", but the subject well captured.

Nice macro with a great POV showing all the features of the fungus.
