Inede: a masterful capture and caught at an angle to maximize the dof. Congratulations on your top 10 finish.

Tied as my highest rated image of the challenge. Excellent shapness throughout the important areas and top notch post capture processing. I might have cropped more of the left side of the frame, but your choice is not distracting. great work.

Nice colors, focus and texture. Interesting perspective in a challenge full of simular shots.

9 - Very good. Great perspective. For me, this would be near perfect had the left wing been in focus as well and possibly slightly 'raised'. The colors are very rich and the plant looks almost solid. Great capture.
