In reply to:

ozimax: Astonishing images. And just think, it took a Creator God to make these impossibly complex animals. He not only makes things work, He makes them beautiful at the same time.

Kudos to the photographer.

One of your god's wonderful creatures just bit me on the leg. Maybe next time you're talking to him you could have a word with him about it...

Wildbegonia: @peterwr
God, I love Nature and Science too.

A bloke from this part of the world, Zoltan Hegedus, was a bit of an expert in diffractive optics in spiders and butterflies. His work was published in some fairly prestigious journals and used to give talks about it - very interesting.

On Ladies' Handbag Secret challenge (7 comments in total)

Do we really want to go there? To quote Hodge Podge & Portnoy from Bloom County: "I tell ya, there's a conspiratorial AIR around females … Like those SUSPICIOUSLY VAGUE TV ads for women's stuff … Where they never quite explain what those things ARE!! Yeah, like what's "feminine protection"? A chartreuse flamethrower? IT'S A PLOT!"

Several of these photos are in sharp focus but with a shallow depth of field, which kinda renders the whole challenge pointless...
