That's an Appropriate Name! Challenge finished on Saturday, 30 Nov 2013 In this challenge show us examples in nature, of plants, flowers, insects or spiders, etc., which have been given names which describe them well. The names will not be their scientific names, but have been adopted into common usage because that is what the subjects looks like. Examples which come to mind include lady slipper orchids, bachelor's buttons, bottle brushes (callistemons,) powder puff tree, crab spider, rhinoceros beetle, cobbler's pegs (Bidens pilosa), chinaman's hat limpet.... For those whose language is other than English, please use your local names for your subjects, and we will Google a translation. Where possible, the subjects should be outside in their natural environment. Macro and close-up shots welcome. Size 1,600px MAXIMUM.

Jordan: Non-Portraits Challenge finished on Thursday, 28 Nov 2013 We captured Jordan's people last week. Now, show us everything else. I expect a ton of images from Petra...I would be disappointed if this does not happen. But Jordan has much more. The spectacular Wadi Rum. The unexplored north. Show us the unexpected. And if you show us the expected, wow us with great lighting, or an unusual composition, or something we haven't seen many times before. Let your creativity run wild. As usual for my challenges, Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules...including voting WITHIN THE FIRST SIX DAYS of the challenge. (Note: I of course would not be surprised by a large number of Petra images. If so, I encourage those entrants to submit ones that are unusual, ones that show Petra in ways we have not seem a million times before.)
Winner: The Vigil
