In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, George Veltchev, on your popular win in the 'My Best Photo of the Week' challenge. This is a really delightful capture of one small, fluffy duckling, which appears to have swum into a psychedelic pond! The colours are wonderfully vibrant and unexpected, and this makes for a unique and memorable picture. Ruth :-)

.. and I thank you for the most encouraging comments here Ruth ... much appreciated !

In reply to:

RuthC: I feel your pain, George Veltchev! This excellent picture makes me wince each time I look at it, and it deserves a top place in this blood-sucking, biting challenge. You've captured the mosquito in amazing detail, and it contrasts well with the colour of the skin, even to the tiny red 'incision' mark where the mosquito is drilling for your blood. Ruth :-)

Thank you for the most wonderful comments Ruth ...much appreciated !

Your photo is deserving of an international award. Beautiful and incredible shot. No matter the outcome here, you should be proud!
