On challenge Butterflies - macro only (2 comments in total)

What does "Macro only" mean? I see a submitted photo shot at 400mm. Is that macro?

It's a Tiger Swallowtail, not a Spicebush. Nice shot regardless.

In reply to:

RuthC: Congratulations, Deadfisheye, on placing second with your fascinating and puzzling 'Mirror Stairs' entry in this week's challenge. You've captured amazing details here for us to ponder, and enjoy. I wish you'd mentioned where you captured this, but perhaps it's a secret location...

In reply to:

Ed at Ridersite: I believe you have a Barn Owl there:

The only way I know of is to withdraw the entry and resubmit - still plenty time (and remaining entries) to do this.

On photo Northern Harrier_0702 in the Best Wildlife Photo of the Week VI challenge (7 comments in total)

That's a haunting image! Congrats on 1st, 2nd and 3rd too - never seen that before. Your score (4.143) is one of the highest all time. I only know of one higher:

https://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=374670&JumpToComment=7850739483

There may be a couple of others. No real way to check now.

Nice shootin!

Nice one! Hard to understand why this didn't win - both in excellent focus and well isolated.
