I can't seem to upload to, or post from my Gallery today (December 21). Anybody else having issue?
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!!
This was one of my top picks. The most precious thing I've ever seen!!
What's with all the 0.5 votes?
What a beautiful shot, congrats! But the little one looks like he is bleeding. I hope he's not hurt??
Very few mantids in my area the past couple of years... :-(
There's something strange about this photo. Why is the flowers to the left in perfect focus while the leaves are totally OOF?
Good one Ruth, congrats! It hurts just to look at this image ;-)
Beautiful shot ANAYV!
Very nice. Lesser Pandas are soooooo much cuter than the giants.
Fun challenge. Some very clever titles here.
Very pretty shot. Congrats.
Wow thank you very much for your votes!
