its always a good feeling to be recognized during voting .. so thankyou .. xx

i did feel i'd lose a few voters because of the ant with his head in the flower .. but i felt it showed what the ant was doing .. collecting nectar .. i actually prefer it in a way to the one i entered in the october 2020 free study where all the ant was shown .. taken a few seconds apart ..

there are some amazing photos in this best of challenge .. and because of my current score i'm hoping to come in the top ten ..
but i've seen comments in the past where ppl complain about seeing too many insect shots and probably mark you down because of that feeling .. altho weirdly they dont get over scenery and birds .. i'm hoping to change that .. !! .. ;)

after rollover .. made that comment during voting when I had been sitting high 6's for a while .. was feeling a bit confident lol .. ;)

Is that you, Roz? I gave these hard workers a 7 (earlier). I love the colors but, I really miss seeing that upper guy's head.

Great DOF and sharpness!
