It is interesting to see many of the top 10 winners got 0.5 points. Hmmmm...sandbagging?
Congrats Stevie, a beautiful shot!
Ruth, there is always a few who complain about everything but the majority of us really enjoy and love your challenges. Some gorgeous entries here!
Carmen, you keep nailing these Best of the Week challenges with your hummer shots! Congrats, great capture!
Thanks Carmen and Nik!
Thanks Ruth and Percy, and to everyone who voted for me!
This was one of my top picks, beautiful colors and I love the way the two bugs are sitting side by side.
Stunning shot Carmen! The sheen on the feathers is fantastic! Beautiful colors.
Congrats on the double win Percy! I actually prefer this to your 1st place shot. Incredible colors and a very special capture.
Great shot, congrats.
BonsaiZG1: As I see on my monitor, there is a lot, not Orange Leaf. Maybe I need to calibrate my monitor also ???
Yes, several are what I would call yellow, tan, anything but orange. They may be "technically" orange, but not the first color to come to mind.

I'm glad you switched to 50 entries Ruth. Much more manageable to vote with so many amazing entries.
Nature is simply amazing!!
Wow what a fantastic insect!! A quick Google search tells me that it is related to the lacewing... Amazing!!!!
Congrats Ruth, another challenge full of entries suitable for desktops and screen savers!
Wow that's an awesome shot! I've seen contrails of a rocket launch before but never a failed one. That must have been an expensive failure.
Wow Stevie, how ever did you capture this? Beauty in simplicity.
Some exceptionally great images this week.
