Uncle Jack: Ruth, in regards to the photo that you rejected as already being used in a previous challenge. When I took this photo, I did so with a burst of 4 frames per second, in hopes of catching the butterfly flying off. So, in effect, I had 4 photos of the same butterfly in the same position on the flower. I just chose the wrong photo in the sequence to post.
Because of your final remark in all caps, to read the rules before posting, I will only say, I did. I just chose the wrong photo in the sequence. I take offense at age 74 to your treating me in a child/parent manner. Therefore, I choose to avoid all your future challenges, unless you choose to make an apology.
I have to agree with Ruth here. If you take several identical images on burst mode, it is a real stretch to call each one a different shot.
Great shot, beautiful colors and detail!
I'm confused. While I feel very honored to place this high, I see many below me that are much more deserving. What happened???
Fabulous shot. Why anybody would give you 0.5 stars is a mystery
Fantastic and difficult shot.
Great shot, probably a tighter crop on the bee would have would have worked for you.
Gorgeous shot, you probably would have taken first place if the wings were in upper position. Should have placed higher.
Such an adorable and unique shot, should have placed higher.
Great shot, should have placed higher.
Outstanding. I think this is the first shot I ever gave a 5 stars to.
Very nice shot
Gorgeous shot, one of my top picks.
Terrific shot, my top pick for sure. Congrats.
Some amazing shots so far!! I have no chance :-)
Curious results. There are some fantastic shots in the lower 2/3. (no, I did not enter)
This is an incredible image!
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?
