Yeah... he was dead when I found him. But, I don't care. *grin* The waterlily is from my watergarden.

I've had this uploaded since the 2nd day of the month. It's been a long wait... I am SO ready for the voting to begin so I can look at another shot. :)

Mid voting: Yes! I'm so glad other people are enjoying this! I had a 7.4 after about 35 votes... knew it wouldn't stay, but was THRILLED!

POST: YES! Yippeee! Top Twenty in a Free Study! Thanks, folks! It kinda takes the edge off the 4.6 I woke up to in the current challenge. LOL!

Thanks for your comments and votes. This guy was in amazingly good condition for his demise.

This is absolutely amazing. I'm sad that i didn't manage to get to it during voting. The focus on it is great and the lighting is amazing. Such a wonderful shot. So surprised this wasn't in the top 5.

Whoah Lydia, what a shot, I loved it so much I gave it a 9. I feel macro shots normally get underrated, but this is a heck of a shot in my book.

Lawrence sobbed quietly into his Lily. Why did the other bugs have to tease him so? So he had a preference for "girl flowers". They couldn't all like Tiger Lilies, could they?

Lawrence wiped a tear and flew away. One day, they'd understand.
