I shoot with both eyes open.
Nice looking image
View at full size and you might spot the dune buggy and American Flag. Maybe you won't.
Oops! I have withdrawn my entry, "Light breakfast" because I have use it in a previous challenge. My apologies to everyone. Just getting to old to remember everything, I guess.Sorry...Steve
brick33308: along the lines of my prior post: go ahead and tell me that the 2 posts, Me and Buddy and I love Yellow were not "photo doctored" and I'll respond that you don't know what you're talking about. They've obviously been blurred and masked to accentuate only the dog (looks like the same one) in both pictures. But I'm actually not criticizing the person who posted those shots. Instead I am criticizing the sponsor of this challenge with his vague, undefined prohibition against "photo doctoring".
I don't think those photos were doctored. 1 was shot with an 85mm @ f1.4. The DOF on that would be a few inches. The dogs eye is in focus and then the image gently blurs out. But other sections on the same focal plane are in focus also. On the I love yellow shot, it was with a 200mm lens at 2.8. Again creating a very shallow DOF. and you can see other areas on the focal plane in focus. I am proficient in Photoshop, and know how to blur, but this is a natural shot.
It should be forewarned that a laser light hitting a camera sensor will ruin the sensor. Use caution.
Please use an expanded view to see the detail in the rigging.
bobcamm: Phoebis Genus...most likely.I'm leaning toward a Yellow phased Cloudless Sulphur (Phoebis sennae)http://bugguide.net/node/view/457780/bgimageYour pupating version looks like a match too!
Thanks for that info Bob...
Would have scored higher if Apple Logo was not upside down. Nice photo.
Congratulations on a very nice shot.
Looks like a V-10
DB Custom: Brilliant, simply brilliant!
Thank you very much!

Although there is no rule against this, it is certainly implied (otherwise we could submit stock photos). Given the low turnout for this challenge, I overlooked the transgression as it is a clever composition.
I do have a few shots of the stars that are my own, that I could have used, but I thought Robert Gendlers shot of Andromeda was fantastic. And, I was having a little trouble shooting the earth, I used some really wide lenses but could not get far enough back. ;) Thanks NASA.--Have Fun!Steve
