Nature: The True Inventor of VELCRO Challenge finished on Saturday, 04 Apr 2015 Modern-day VELCRO was designed by a Swiss inventor, George de Mestral, after he studied the burdock burrs clinging to his clothes and hair on his dog after a hike in the mountains. In this challenge, show us the sorts of prickly burrs (burs), or seed-sacs which cling to passers-by, in order to travel to new fertile ground. You may enter pictures of small prickly or sticky seeds such as burrs, acaena species, forget-me-nots, burr clover, flowers with sticky stalks such as plumbago, etc. Please don't enter photos of teasels or large thistles, as these are easily seen and avoided when you are out walking. They will have their own challenge in a few weeks' time. Macro and close-up photos welcome. Size of entry: 1,600px MAXIMUM on its longer side.
Winner: Frozen Lighthouse
Icicles! Challenge finished on Saturday, 04 Apr 2015 Now that winter is over (at least when the submissions start it will be), it's time to show some images of icicles. If the lighting is right, they can glisten with beauty. Although not a requirement, submit an image showing an icicle acting as a prism emitting some of the colors of the rainbow. But whatever your image, try to take one as artistic as you can. Back lighting can be very effective as an example. The image can contain one or more icicles.
