****** Up close and personal - Results - Dishonourable mention.
2

Before getting down to the joyful task of announcing the best entries and exhibits I received for Mini challenge 623, I have yet again been forced to discipline one contributor for a blatant attempt to ride roughshod over the rules. I am of course, referring to this monstrous image from Val Bueno...

After some coaching from Dak on cam, I finally made the rules for eligible images perfectly clear - the challenge sought closeup images of living creatures with lungs and legs or of members of the whale family should sea creatures be the focus.

This image from Val is a sea creature but not a whale, Even if I was willing to allow that is photographed on shore and not in the water, it is still disqualified because it has no legs and its ability to blow itself up into a ball studded with spines is a defensive mechanism and not a method of breathing. I would have been more gentle in my reaction to these transgressions against the rules if it were not for the final straw - the thing is dead.

I realise that in some unsavoury quarters of this forum, a Dishonourable mention has become a sought after accolade, but really - A dead puffer fish? Shame upon you young Val.
