I have strove, tried very hard, to offer challenges that are fresh, new, and unique to my past challenges. It has become more and more difficult to deliver new and fresh challenges that are not repeats of my past challenges, but I consider it a challenge to myself to offer new and fresh challenges to the community that aren't the simple repeats that other challenges often deliver Who am I? I'm a 15 year U.S. Biology Teacher, with a master +30, and a U.S. Scientist (retired). View my photos at: http;// email me directly at:

2nd place
I was hiking in the woods hoping to get some telephoto wildlife shots, but instead the weather started to drizzle with light rain. It became obvious this wasn't going to be a very good day for wildlife photography. I started back to the trail head and on the way back I looked down and saw these plants with water droplets on them. I had my macro lens with me so I put it on my camera and tried to take a shot of the water droplets on this plant. I didn't realize what this picture even looked like until I got home later that day.
