On photo yellow shield bug in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)

Congratulations, Peterski, on placing third in this week's challenge. Your capture of this shield bug, (or cotton harlequin) bug is excellent, with wonderful fine detail and clarity in the face and particularly its faceted eyes. I know that these bugs are pests for farmers, as well as home gardeners, but aren't they so wonderfully photogenic, with their bright attractive colours! A well-deserved top spot.

On photo River Reflections in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)

What a beautiful evening picture, ozziebadger, and a well-deserved second place in this week's challenge. You must have been so reluctant to drag yourself away from your daytime jobs in order to sit and contemplate this peaceful, relaxed scene.... I really like the colours you've captured in the sky, with the feathery clouds, reflected in the still waters below. A real beauty!

Congratulations, Moon0326, on your excellent and grand image, which has won you the well-deserved first place in 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenge. A truly impressive panorama of our universe, and a reality check for us standing with you in the grass, with just one lone tree reaching upwards.
Please take time to participate in voting in these challenges. It assists everyone.

On challenge Spring's in bloom (1 comment in total)

It was difficult to vote fairly for quite a number of these entries, since they did not comply with the host's theme of spring WILDFLOWERS. Magnolia, apple or cherry tree blossoms are NOT wildflowers, nor are the daffodils or tulips planted in gardens, waterlilies in ponds, etc.

On photo Parental Care brings the Wonder of New Life in the The Wonder of Life challenge (2 comments in total)

What a beautiful picture, cjf2, and it has won you a well-deserved top place in 'The Wonder of Life' challenge. The birds are tack sharp, and their feathers are defined beautifully. Is this a case of supply and demand, or demand and supply? I smile each time I view this image, and I'm sure many others have enjoyed the wonderful interaction here.

On photo Olive Ridley Turtle Hatchling in the The Wonder of Life challenge (4 comments in total)

This is an unusual, interesting and very thought-provoking picture you have given us, Steve in CR, and it deserves a top place in this challenge. You have placed the little hatchling central in the picture, with only water and sand surrounding it, and this helps us to see the enormity of the task ahead for this little turtle starting its (hopefully) long life journey.

On photo Circle of Life in the The Wonder of Life challenge (2 comments in total)

I really like this image, Nick_Brisbane, and it deserves to place second in this interesting challenge about the wonder of life. I like the juxtaposition of these two lionesses, their colours and their alertness, while the cubs are kept in close proximity, just in case.... I just love the helpless look on the face of the little one in his mother's mouth!

On photo Humming Along in the The Wonder of Life challenge (2 comments in total)

Congratulations, Cassowary, on your well-deserved first place in 'The Wonder of Life' challenge, with your beautiful capture of a tiny hummingbird in full flight. I understand that this is a difficult achievement for many photographers, given the speed these little dynamos move at. Great colours in the bird and the bright flowers, while the blue sky lifts the whole picture.

Congratulations, pimagine, on placing third in this weekly challenge, with your intriguing architectural image. You've obviously spent a great deal of thought and consideration on the best way to achieve this interesting picture. I Googled the Rotterdam Cubic Houses, and found them to be amazing, a photographer's delight. You have excelled here!

On photo The Kingfisher in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (1 comment in total)

This is an excellent capture of one of your resident kingfishers, Denjw, and it deserves second place in this week's challenge. Each time I've viewed this picture this week, I'm reminded of Pinocchio, and I wonder what sort of mischief this young bird might be getting into! A beautiful picture in every way.

On photo A Jeter-like jete in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (6 comments in total)

Congratulations, billslatteryjr, on your action-packed capture of these two baseball players, and it has won first place in 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenge. It's a wonderfully clear, dramatic shot, and an excellent example of one picture being worth a thousand words. Great colours, textures and contrasts make this one for the wall.

On photo Double Butterfly Delight in the Life in the Macro Jungle challenge (1 comment in total)

This is a really delightful picture of two flirting butterflies, vass, placing third in this 'Macro Jungle' challenge. The soft greens of the background, and surrounding flower stalks showcase the two players in this dance. A worthy and beautiful capture.

On photo Climbing beetles in the Life in the Macro Jungle challenge (1 comment in total)

Congratulations, Jill Hancock, on your excellent picture of these wonderful bright shiny scarab beetles in their own Macro Jungle, the theme of this challenge, and it has earned you second place here. You've achieved the difficult task of capturing the bright sparkle on these beetles, no mean achievement. They contrast beautifully with the pink blossoms on the plant stems, and a soft green/gold background. A very pleasing, delightful image in every way.

On photo Decisions, decisions.... in the Life in the Macro Jungle challenge (2 comments in total)

Congratulations, Charles Baxter, on your well-deserved win in this 'Life in the Macro Jungle' challenge. This picture of a very small, bewildered-looking jumping spider epitomises the the title and theme of this challenge. You have captured the spider in exquisite detail, and shown us exactly what life is like for him, on even the smallest plant stems. A real beauty!

As always, man4mopar, you have given us another great spectacle to enjoy from your lonely and unique place in Antarctica. We can't be there to see what you see, but we certainly enjoy your presentations.

On photo McWay Falls at night in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (3 comments in total)

Congratulations, Jonathan Shapiro, on placing third in this week's challenge. I really like your deep colour gradations between the starry starry sky, with its blues/purples/pinks to the azure blue and white of the surf below, and the craggy, jagged rocks of Big Sur, jutting into the sea.

On photo Boston at Blue Hour in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)

This is a very well-composed image of Boston, shortchord, and it deserves second place in this weekly challenge. As you had planned, my eyes follow the heavy, solid chain along the cobbled stone pathway, cross the bridge, and then look at the interesting city buildings with their reflected illuminations. Beautiful!

On photo Bluejays ready for love in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (6 comments in total)

Congratulations, Ed at Riderside, on your well-deserved win in 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenge, with your delightful capture of this young couple. The colours and plumage of the blue jays is really attractive, and particularly surrounded by your redbud blossoms. I've enjoyed watching your redbud tree in your challenge entries in recent weeks, as it turns from cold winter into bursts of pink blooms in spring; and the visitors it welcomes. Another great picture for us to enjoy.
