I hope people have fun thinking up a title ..!!.. ;)

but this was CRAZY ..
i was looking for something small and insectlike to photograph in the grass ..
as there wont be many insects soon because we are going into winter ..
i heard a buzzing and saw a fleeting movement .. luckily i was able to follow the movement to see where these two flies landed ..
i quickly crouched down .. got off one shot and then they buzzed away ..
i was very lucky getting them in focus straighht off ..
if i had been able to get a couple more shots i would have tried to compose it so that oof blade of grass wasnt an eyesore bottom left hand side .. altho if i had moved i may have scared them off anyway ..

AFTER ROLLOVER ..
the blue made me so happy .. for grungy but sexy old flies . !! ..
THANKYOU EVERYONE for your excellent titles .. and votes .. xx
oh .. except for the vote of 1 .. no thankyou for that .. lol . !! .. ;)

Roz, you continue to amaze me with your talent and eye for finding the micro-universes in the everyday worlds around us and the stunning beauty that they hold. Beautiful work once again! :)

I would title this: "Life Goes On"

My 10 - like ' . substr('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Neat, there was never any doubt in my mind. As for the 1, I'm betting that is a result of the old scoring with the keypad thing where an intended 10 gets recorded as a 1 and the voter doesn't notice. Unless that voter spots it now and tells you, you'll never know, though.
