OMG this is so funny....
Really unfortunate that one troll had to ruin this for everybody. Rule seemed clear.
RuthC: Sorry folks, but I won't be in a position to host the challenges for (hopefully) a very short while. My sincere apologies to everyone who wished to enter these weekly challenges.RuthC :-(
Hope you are feeling better soon Ruth.
I like this a lot, simple yet beautiful
Congrats, beautiful and bit chaotic after rain image. Very dramatic.
cjf2: Wonderful picture. The water drops really make a nice touch.
I think the flash froze the wings.
RuthC: I'm so sorry that this challenge won't be open for entries at present. While I'm in hospital I find it difficult to manage the challenges. I hope you understand my dilemma. Ruth
I hope you are feeling better...
Oh my goodness, what a shot!!
Congrats Stevie, an excellent shot!
Wishing you a speedy recovery Ruth!!
Excellent. My top pick.

Ed at Ridersite: It truly looks asleep! I have some shots with the lid closed, but only when blinking. Nice catch and congrats on a high finish.
Thanks Ed, she really was sleeping. She was like this for several minutes, then flew away.
Thank you Ruth. She was catching a quick snooze and I was able slowly creep up to her to take this shot.
Love this shot! Congrats.
What a great catch! Congrats.
One of my top picks. Shallow DOF with focus on exactly the right spot gives the image a warm and soft feel of the chick.
One of my top picks. Sure is a once in a lifetime shot!!
