Thanks you Carmen, Ruth, merops! I feel very honored placing this high among some incredible entries in this challenge.

Ruth - you may remember this same subject shot from a different angle took 2nd place in your New Life challenge.

Does it have to be a mating pair (male and female) or any two ducks?

Windancer: While I realize it is time consuming, isn't the "correct" way of voting to go to ‘Each’ individual submission and view it full screen and better yet, magnified? Just curious........ :-)

Wow I didn't know about the slideshow mode. That makes life so much easier (and faster!!!) Thanks, silly me.

And this was really tough voting, such amazing entries!

ConanFuji: My apologies for canning this Challenge on 1st of August. I didn't know then that many people look forward to this a Ducks challenge, and I apologize for my rash decision. This challenge will open on the 8th of August.

Thanks, I was wondering where this disappeared to!

RuthC: Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts. They let me out on parole a few days ago, stressing that I had to 'convalesce'.....
That word isn't in my vocabulary, but I think it means something like no housework, having someone look after my every whim, lying around doing nothing....
Seriously, though, I'm feeling better every day, and I'm glad I had the iPad in hospital, and the challenges to keep my mind occupied. Your messages of support were very welcome.
Ruth :-)

Wishing you a speedy recovery, Ruth.

RuthC: I wish to acknowledge my very sincere thanks to my husband, Steve. I've been in hospital for over a week now, and unable to do all the detailed work of organizing this challenge. I've had an IPad here, but it can't all the extra work which my Big Mac can do.
So, I've been able to assess the size of entries, etc, and Steve has then gone home to DQ'S the miscreants, with appropriate messages.
This is not an ideal situation, but if there are any entries which should have been DQ'd and weren't, then I take full responsibility for this. It was the best we could do in the circumstances.
Cheers, Ruth

Ditto

Images by Kipper: RuthC.:

The only way that people can vote on this Challenge is to go to ‘Each’ individual submission and view it full screen and better yet, magnified. If the voter does this they will find some truly phenomenal shots.

Nature at its finest in my opinion with some beautiful, revealing, unknown images of a ‘Pest’ that is possibly not given its due as something of beauty.

Good luck to all ~ Kipper

I'm not magnifying that dead rat shot :-)

I looked in my field guide and found out this is called a Thick-headed Fly!! Pretty cool, looks so much like a wasp.

In reply to:

RuthC: I want to acknowledge my very grateful thanks to my husband, Steve, for his diligent assistance in this challenge.
I've been in hospital for more than a week, and while I have been able to view entries to the challenges with my iPad, it has limitations regarding sending DQ's and their accompanying messages to entrants.
So I have assessed the sizes, etc, then Steve has gone home to DQ the relevant entries on my big Mac, together with messages to the entrants.
This is not an ideal way to host a challenge, but I believe it was the best solution for us at this time.
I take full responsibility for any inadvertent DQ's or problems with communications.

By the way, I am delighted with the high calibre of photos of bugs, and I'm so pleased you had the opportunity to show them to the world.
Cheers, Ruth.

I hope you are feeling better soon Ruth!
