Thank You, Ruth.
I agree with Ruth there is a real beauty in it's delicate simplicity.
Very nice capture. i suspect there was a "Creepy" factor that kept it from scoring higher. Nice use of selective focus.
Great capture Yuki. One of my favorites in the challenge. I like the perching on the dewy plant leaf and the background.
Nice feather detail. Was it a cold evening? I've seen them puff up their feathers like that on cold days.
Ed at Ridersite: That's a beauty! Congrats on 2nd place.
Thank You, Ed.
ysal: Congrats Carmen, great shot!
I have a shot of a Ladybug suspended from a spider web. Just saying :)
One of my favorites also. How did you get it? Great perspective.
My Son abusing a defenseless, small reptile seems a more accurate description.
Nice feather detail. I've found it's a challenge to capture the black eyes of this bird, you did a good job of it.
Nice capture Percy. Interesting eye and nice focus on it.
Nice capture. I like the Backlight on the edges of the ice.
Great capture Mick. Nice lighting and focus.
Great shot of a beautiful bee. Nice use of the flash. What diffuser did you use?
What a mouth on this one. Would not want it to take a bite on my finger. Good shot.
Great shot James. It is an interesting specimen. It has stripes like a zebra on the head.
Great capture, Percy. This particular species appears to have an eye at the side of it's head, way back. I hadn't seen that with other jumping spiders. It must really be hard to sneak up on this one.
Beautiful shot, of a beautiful Lion. I had it as my favorite among some excellent entries.
