There are some great shots in the challenge, but this was my favorite. The light and colors are fantastic!

Great shot you captured a graceful flight. I hope it brings appreciation of a very graceful and important bird. They do kind of smell, but I overlook that because they help to keep down disease.

I'm always amazed to see a dragonfly-in-flight shot. Especially one straight-on and this detailed.

In reply to:

cjf2: Thanks. You're from Texas and I dare say you may not used to how bad the light can be in Northern England! A bit of flash made a heck of a difference. If you look at my picture of the much paler Sandwich Tern in the wings challenge that finished the same day you can see similar light without flash.
Congrats on your win.

Your right I'm lucky to be in a place that has so many days of sunlight. However, I can't stay long in my hide when it's 90 to 100 degrees F as it is now. October to April is the best, Sunny and mild weather usually.

Great shot. Interesting that you used flash. It seems to have produced highlights and shading throughout the feathers.

Thank You, Ruth. It's a striped sunflower seed. I've seen just about every bird I have except Crows, Mockingbirds, and hummingbirds going to my sunflowers seed feeder.

This isn't any kind of life for these magnificent animals. Inhumane. If I'm wrong or misreading in some way what's going on in this image please explain my error.

Nice Image. I used to see these when I lived in Panama. This brought back nice memories for me. Have any Blue Morph Butterfly shots? :)

On Roosting Monarchs in the Naturally Suspended challenge (2 comments in total)

Great capture. i'm particularly fond of Monarchs. Taken in Iowa? It looks like a Pine branch so I wondered if this was taken in Mexico.

RuthC: What a fantastic capture, cmantx, and a very-well deserved win in this 'Naturally Suspended' Challenge. Your ladybird fits the theme beautifully. I love the drama of the whole picture. The colours enhance it, from the orange and black of the ladybird to the many shades of green and lemon in the surrounds, particularly the bright lemon 'spotlight' behind the ladybird. Ruth :-)

Thank You, Ruth. When I entered it I thought it was one of those shots that many would find distasteful and some interesting and just part of nature. (especially as it's a dead Ladybug/Ladybird) I'm pleasantly surprised.
