On harp seal pup in the Our Sense of Sight (Nature) challenge (2 comments in total)

Lovely image. And to know that hundred of thousands of them are clubbed to death each year for their fur is simply appalling. Have you watched a video of these beautiful babies clubbed to a bloody pulp in front if thei mothers?! Why can't we stop this barbaric practice?

The challenge title should be changed to "Best Use of Sandbags".

We need to know the challenge topic which these entries lost in. A technically beautiful image that totally missed the topic would not win a challenge.

RuthC: For those of you who like the tiny jumping spiders, I can recommend this YouTube video of an Australian male Peacock Jumping Spider. Oh, the lengths some males go, to to attract the attention of young ladies.... :-)

RuthC: Congratulations, ysal, on your well-deserved win in this Botanical Jigsaw Puzzle Challenge. This entry has been leading the entries most of the week, and rightly so. It would make a devilish jigsaw puzzle, with its repeating candy pink and green-striped buds, all the same colour, and all at the same readiness to open. These tall aloe flower spikes are a photographer's delight, and you have excelled here. Ruth :-)

Whoa, totally unexpected! I was just hoping to make it in the top 10. Thank you Ruth, and everyone for your votes.

In reply to:

The Mick: Hello,
I failed to comment as I voted on these, so let me say it now. ;o) This one was my favorite of the bunch! I love the soft, muted tones in the background and the funky shaped leaf is great!
Thanks for sharing.
Mick

Thank you Mick!

On Silver Dust Leaf in the Blue, Grey or Silver Leaves challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: This is a beautiful capture of a well-named Silver Dust leaf, and it deserves to be in the top places in this challenge. I really like the simplicity of your picture: one single leaf, against the muted silver-grey background of the plant. However, the leaf has such an interesting and beautiful shape, with the softest textural hairs on its surface. This translates on my screen so that I can 'feel' the velvety softness, which is often quite difficult to achieve. Ruth :-)

Thank you Ruth! I'll look for blue spruce next time :-)
