On Old Unused Bags. challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

anirbanc: I guess what the host means is that old bags which were used once and are now buried in some corner of the house may be..!!
Am I right?

Yes - the wording for this one is tricky. If you ask for photos of "old bags" you might get something different again...

Great photography - and a testament to his attitude and personality that he can establish the trust and affinity with his subjects that is apparent in his photographs...

Have you considered limiting the entries to say 100? Otherwise it makes voting a bit of an ordeal...

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.

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.
