Challenge has finished
Quite simple really, all you need to do is submit your favourite image of the Week. Images must be taken within the seven day period shown in the title. The weeks first day will ALWAYS be the Friday announcement date and the last day for image taking will ALWAYS be the following Thursday just before the submission phase begins. All images shot within the week of the submission phase will automatically be disqualified with no exceptions. The simple reason for this is that they would of course be eligible for the next Favourite of the Week challenge. A description of why the image is your 'Favourite Of The Week' is encouraged BUT NOT mandatory. Nudity will ALWAYS be disqualified , Horrific & Gory pictures will ALWAYS be disqualified. Only DIGITAL camera images ( from any brand of Camera) will be accepted. The Image must have been taken by you.

55th place (joint)
The viewers eye is drawn to the large black globe eyes of the butterfly. The depth of field is so tiny that even when the eyes are in focus the antennae are out of focus at the very tip. The blues of the butterfly contrast against the greens of the surrounding plants.
