So I was just messing around with an extension tube on my 70-200 and ended up with this shot I kinda like, I am leaning toward the B&W but would love some other opinions.

The bug disappears in B&W, and I like the colored one as it brings out the spots in the flower. I vote color. Nice shot :)

Since you have image editing on, I tried some sharpness & contrast and removing the stray leaf in the top right, plus bringing out the bug... makes it perhaps stand out a bit more.

So seeing as the consensus is the color I took another pass at the edit.
