Already commented on this, but putting a little note here to let you know why I added this to my Favorites. This is one of the more 'memorable' favorites I have. I really liked the capture, pose and the color of the fly. It was not 'perfect' of course, as I said in my comments, but the potential was there and for your camera, this was a pretty good shot. Having been here a while now, I'd also add that this at 640 likely would have helped, perhaps by incorporating more 'context'/environment, depending of course what you had. temporary note: just read one of your 'forum posts', so another reason I wanted to put this down now, in the hope that you will see it. Also to let you know that I like many of your shots and your 'style'. edit: the "7" in my original comments was only 'pretend', hopefully you worked that out at the time (I was new), but for what it's worth, I'd give it a 7 today if I were voting in the same Challenge.

Looks oversharped, there is a halo around the outside edges.

Good capture, but appears OOF and oversharpened. Interesting perspective in a challenge full of simular shots.

7 - Wow. No idea what this is, but the red is very good. For me it is a little out of focus/blurred, and not enough detail. I am sure if 'it' were on something else also so richly colored, it would make a brilliant photo.

If the subject was sharp it would help this pic tremendously.
