Joe Pineapples: I'm guessing you are talking about light itself: the electromagnetic field being a two-form in four-dimensional space-time, of a possible 16 (4x4) components in any given frame it has only six independent components ("legs"). The odd symmetry forces the diagonal components to zero leaving 16-4=12 of which 6 are obviously the negative of the other 6, three being space-like and three being time-like, hence it is inherently a six-legged beast intrinsic to photography, e.g. see:
However, his other clues make no sense then. No legs? Can buy it at the store? Comes in different resolution?
I can't quite get there. I have some inklings of what you mean but can't quite put them all together. I find your use of lower and upper case in your description confusing too. Is that also a clue or just how you type?
Fantastic shot, congrats!
ysal: It sounds like what you are after is the quality of the reflection on a smooth mirror like water?
Thanks Stevie, yes it helps. After all, there are reflections and then there are "REFLECTIONS"!!

Great shot in every respect.
Thanks Carmen, I took my time and moved very slowly and eventually got to about 4 feet of him.
I can't believe anybody would give this only 1 star...!!!
S2LPi: I really enjoyed watching and participating in this challenge. Congratulations to those with the top photos.
I am having trouble understanding how it is that every entry seems to garner low ratings from at least a few people. Can our opinions about images and what makes them good be so divergent that what looks like a great shot to most gets a "1 star" from someone? I'm a little baffled, but I'm new here - I'm sure this has all been hashed out already.
I'm not complaining - the rating system for determining "placement" is nicely effective in "washing out" the incongruous ratings - just wondering about the "curiosities" in the data.
Im also puzzled how the first place image can get one star from anybody. I can only presume sandbagging.
ysal: Tough challenge! There is a subtle difference between mimic and camouflage, where camouflage is primarily for the purpose of hiding while mimic is looking like something else for whatever reason. This is going to be difficult to vote.
We have faith in you to do the right thing Ruth ;-)
Fantastic shot, congratulations!
Stunning image, congratulations.
Im a little disappointed in these results. A few of the winners in the top 20 have entries with names that are not particularly interesting or representative.

Another fantastic hummer shot! Congrats Carmen.
I'm puzzled by this image. Usually these refracted images are upside down, so how was this shot?
cameranut64: Can I change my entry?
If you open your entry, there is a "withdraw" button at the bottom. Then re-enter your new one before the challenge fills up!
Wow what a fantastic image! Congrats Carmen!!
WOW totally unexpected!!! Thank you so much everyone!
