Is the first picture (bee/yellow & white flower) up-side down?

Nice pics & good advice. Using a flash can also help you capture the high-speed motion of insect wings, etc.

HELLO IGGYBIRD, a bee is not a wasp. The picture is of a wasp on a flower. :)

OK then, so now we have that from the bug person,... we need a plant person to tell us if that species' flower is oriented properly... and that may answer the original question? :>)

I'll second the nice pics vote and say that #6- 'coloured dew drop' is especially well done and with great advice.

Looks upside-down (columbine?), but even if we knew the species, how could we be sure that the flower was oriented as expected at that particular moment (maybe it's a sunny but windy day).

Personally I'm far more bothered by the fact that the photo has clearly been flipped right to left, based on the handedness of the wasp, of course :->

Dave,
In Photo #7 ("Mind the background")

Was that black background from a daytime shot?
