RuthC: Now this is what I'd call a wonderfully devious jigsaw puzzle, karamanda13, and one which would drive me nuts! Stunning blue hyacinths with just a few green leaves to soften the overall effect of the intensity of the whole picture. You have achieved excellent sharpness in every flower, on every flower head. A well deserved third place in this challenge. Ruth :-)
Thanks Ruth! :-)
I like this picture a lot. Great reflections and colours and the rocks set it off nicely. :)
I love this photo :)
treytexag: I don't know what it is exactly but I find this to be a compelling photo. It just dares me to keep looking at it . . . .
I like it karamanda, nice pic.

Good idea and well executed
Stevie Boy Blue: As the challenge host, I say well-done on your deserved third place. As a keen wildlife fan, I appreciate how difficult it can be to grab some subjects, especially as they're just about to perch up. Nice one.
Thanks for your comment :)
RuthC: This is beautiful; the silhouette of the fuchsias is highlighted perfectly by the soft colours of the background. My favourite in this challenge. Ruth :-)
