I would guess it has to do with the rabbit using the cage to its advantage. The "safe from the foxes" title isn't communicated through the photo, it just looks like a caged rabbit...

edit: by that definition there are some other entries that don't fit the challenge from what I can see. Maybe the challenge is not worded properly, cause I can't see the advantage in some of these photos. Nature taking over man made things is not the same thing, as taking advantage.

Here are the words I used to ConanFuji when I DQ'd his entry.

'Sorry to DQ your interesting entry, but it really doesn't meet the subject definition of the challenge. Here, man has adopted the care of the rabbit, and it has not had a lot of choice where it lived. This challenge is mainly for macro shots or close-ups of insects, spiders, and plants using man-made objects or structures to their advantage. You may enter another photo in the challenge if you wish. Ruth'

His entry isn't the only one I've had to DQ. So far, the count is 28, and rising. I am well aware that there are a number of entries which may be/ should be/ could be DQ'd, but I figure life is too short to get too distressed about it. I'm also aware of language barriers in some of the entries, so I've tried to be lenient.

If ConanFuji feels so upset about his DQ, perhaps he should have contacted me personally....

I see why you DQ'd this entry. Just to be picky, is a rabbit an insect, a spideer or a plant?

Charlie, it is a 'small creature.' the size of the pigeons, squirrels and even small monkeys

Re: DQed from Nature in a man made world.

The entry has been reinstated, and the voters will be able to judge whether it fits their idea of a macro or close-up shot of nature taking advantage of our man-made world.

Should I also reinstate the two landscape sunsets, a tall apartment block, and (wait for it) two glacé cherries on a chocolate cake! Not joking!!

There are a LOT of photos in there that don't meet the "rules", in my opinion.  The rules are very specific.  Personally I don't think the rabbit in a cage meets the rules, but hey, what do I know.

"In this challenge, show us an example where nature, such as plants, insects, spiders or other small creatures, has used a man-made object to its advantage. Macro or close-ups only, and outside in the natural world if possible. Large trees such as those growing at Ta Prohn in Cambodia will be DQ'd. SIZE: 1,600px MAXIMUM ON LONGER SIDE."

How could anyone think a rabbit is a cage was following the challenge to the letter?

Interesting interpretation. lol.

Right. If the macro or closeup only suggestion is taken seriously there aren't that many that comply.

But, as that's in the description not the rules...

Maybe the rabbit (which is of course a small creature in comparison with an elephant) fled from a snake. It saved itself in the cage and shut the door. Wouldn't that be a use of a man-made object to its advantage?

Way to go, Ruth.....It is good to see a Host be 'in charge' and make decisions, and then stand by them, no matter the slings and arrows.  The challenges are not life and death situations, they are primarily entertainment through which we get to view what other non-professionals are doing, and perhaps learn something.  We need more hosts like you, and I say: Thanks!

And, compared to a scenic of the Grand Canyon, it's a close-up.

Perhaps you missed the later post where Ruth said . . .

"The entry has been reinstated,  . . . "

. . .  after the Entrant publicly whined about his invalid entry being DQed.

No, that's a different kind of rabbit.

I can not agree more with you.  I like your comment. Unfortunately there are hosts that are so used to bend the rules at their capricious will that it becomes a second nature to them, and so they expect at some point to be exempt  from them too.   --
