Gorgeous image, perfect for this challenge. Should have placed much higher.
These all appear to be the same species
var away: Most of the entrants here are from the US as evident by their subject matter a killdeer for example is not doing that.
Various other entries clearly have not read the info properly.
I was about to post the same. Some "nicknames" have no meaning, or given by the photographer and not of "common usage". Explanation in the comment section would help some entries, perhaps.
Sad, this is the only correct entry and you placed 14th....
That is sad that even after the answer was given, the only image that got the riddle placed 14th......
I keep staring at this photo in wonderment. Nature is just fantastic!
Congratulations, this is a perfect example of the challenge topic.
Congrats Carmen, you nailed another one!
Sorry Nigel, that is pretty lame. How does "wrong vowel" of PODA equate to touch screen tablets? How does "no lower keg" equate to "not a laptop"? I use my iPad on my lap all the time.
Nobody got disqualified..... I guess Nigel is not going to give us the answer. How in the heck are we supposed to vote?
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...!!!
