RuthC: Congratulations, Henry Lozykowski, on gaining a top place in this challenge where there so many excellent entries.
Passionflowers would have to be one of the weirdest flowers in the botanical kingdom, IMO, and you have succeeded in showing us its strange and unique structures, with its interesting details, textures, colours, against the darker green of the leafy vine. (Of course, the best part of the passionflower is enjoyed later, in the delicious fruit, which we can see is already forming just below the three 'antennae'.)
RuthC :-)

Thanks Ruth, for your comments I’m satisfied you liked them.

In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, Henry Lozkowski, on your well-deserved win in this 'Flowering Weeds' challenge. The humble borage plant is a very interesting and photogenic subject, with its hairy stems and buds, while the star-like flowers are attractive in their contrasting colours and shapes. You've captured this beauty very well, with lovely detail, texture and colour contrast. Ruth :-)

Ruth thank you so much for, your kind words!

In reply to:

RuthC: Fabulous photo, Henry Lozykowski, not just of the grapevine hoplia, but also of the free rider on its back, which makes me smile! Great colours, varied textures from the very shiny surfaces to the hairiness on the undersides of the beetle, and the busy untidiness of the flower. A well-deserved fifth spot in this challenge where so many excellent entries vied for top places. Ruth :-)

Thanks Ruth, for your comment.
I’m pleased you liked them.

RuthC: Congratulations, Henry Lozykowski, on placing fourth in this 'Interesting Insects' Challenge. Your skipper caterpillar reminds me of a red-headed clown, ready to juggle the blue balls. This is a beautiful, bright cheerful capture which shows nature at its best. Ruth :-)

RuthC: This is a great capture, Henry, of your robber fly laying eggs in the spent flower(?). It deserves to be in the top four places in this interesting challenge. Wonderful clarity, and detail in the subject. Ruth :-)

Female robber fly uses their ovipositor to deposit eggs in dead flower head.
