  • Submitted a challenge entry Eggsplosion!
    Taken in a modified cardboard box on the table in my pitch black living room. The eggs were lit by one flash gun from above that was connected to a sound trigger. The inside of the box was painted white to reflect the light from the flash all around the eggs.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Risky high-altitude snack
    After taking this photo I found out that this caterpillar will turn into a Cinnabar moth. He is about 3/4 inches long and he has a bright pattern because he is very unpleasant to eat, as he has absorbed many Alkaloids from this Ragwort plant. This is the only plant he eats and it is poisonous to many animals and humans. As you can see in the top right of the photo, he has decimated one of the flower buds and is now tucking into some tasty petals for dessert.
The photo was taken in South Wales.

  • Commented on Lizard1 in the Reptiles and Amphibians up close challenge

    Lets hope not as that date would be somewhat against the rules of the challenge :-/ . Saying that 2059 doesn't seem quite appropriate either.

  • Commented on Lizard1 in the Reptiles and Amphibians up close challenge

    2059 seems to have been a popular year to photograph lizards!

  • Submitted a challenge entry Soft as the hairs on a Bumblebee's back
    This bumblebee was fast asleep after a hard days work. A few seconds after taking this photo, a small fly bumped into his face, waking him up and he bumbled away.

    Hi Hans,

    Any chance the maximum number of entries might be increased?

    I would like to enter this challenge and have a scanner on order, but it won't arrive until after the challenge has opened...

  • Commented on Macro - Animal Parts challenge

    Does the 'basic retouching' rule prevent people from entering stacked macro photos? It's impossible to get any kind of DOF with proper macro photos (not the inside of butchers shops!) without...
