Really nice image, both technically and in terms of subject matter. Good use of focus (I'm not sure I could have avoided the temptation to use a more limited depth of field here, but I'm really glad you didn't). The stark background makes it; anything distracting it the background would have really hurt the image, I think.

I don't know what it is, but I probably won't be eating it. Very nicely captured and an intriguing subject.

Very cool - whatever it is. I like the solid background. It makes the greens really pop. Good luck in the challenge.

I have tried to photograph this many times, but it is not easy. Look very closely, somehow the original always looks better than the photo. Lights and focus
