Winner: Yellow Jacket Wasp (vespula vulgaris)
Wasps & Hornets Challenge finished on Saturday, 23 Mar 2013 In this challenge, show us those insects we refer to as wasps, or their larger relatives, hornets. (Order Hymenoptera.) Often they aren't so friendly to those of us who accidentally encounter them or their nests. However, they are very useful, as parasitizers to control most pest insects. Macro and close-up shots welcome. The wasps or hornets, must be outside, on flowers, leaves, flying around, tending their nests, or just doing what they do; NOT under studio lights. No bees, flies or spiders etc. Check Wikipedia for more information about wasps and hornets, or http://bugguide.net/node/view/59/bgpage SIZE: 1,600px MAXIMUM ON LONGER SIDE.

Black and White entry of 1 colorful bird. See special rules. Challenge finished on Thursday, 21 Mar 2013 We love photographing the rich colors of birds. Work with a colorful bird (like a parrot) and create an interesting black and white entry. (No sepia, no color please). Entry must state the color(s) of the bird in the title or description and the color must not be a black or white bird. It must have other color to fit the challenge. I feel voting helps the challenges, so this challenge is open to those who have done some voting. See RULE 2.

cambodia 1 of 4: environmental portraits Challenge finished on Thursday, 21 Mar 2013 When we think of Cambodia, our thoughts naturally turn to Angkor Wat. But its people are incredibly photogenic. From monks, to adorable children, to adults working in their day-to-day lives, it's hard to find a person that is not worthy of a photograph. So, show us these images. No close-ups...that will be for next week's challenge. See my earlier challenges, or send me a PM, if you have any questions about what an "environmental" portrait is. In addition, this particular challenge is for subjects that are *not* staring into the camera and/or not posing for the camera. 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. **UPDATE** FOR THIS CHALLENGE, YOU **MUST** VOTE ON OR BEFORE TUESDAY. (IE, YOU HAVE ONLY 6 DAYS TO VOTE, INSTEAD OF 7 DAYS!!!!).
