Hi Lizzie! It's too bad this one got DQ'd, since it's your first entry here at DPC. I am guessing that the date in your camera was not set, so the exif file shows a date different from the actual shooting date. It's a common mistake, so it's not a big deal. I think that probably over half of all the DPC'ers have at least one DQ.

About the photo, most of the photos of little critters that do well in the challenges are shot tight or cropped so that the critter is filling most of the frame, unless there is something else in the image that's supporting the focus on the critter. An example of that would be keeping part of a twig or flower that a butterfly or dragonfly is sitting on, as a "leading line" to give the image some dynamic impact.

Anyway, welcome to DPC. You got off to a rough start here, but hopefully you will stick around to learn more about photography, and to and meet some people here. The side challenges are great for that.

Kind of over sharpened.
