The hornworm was hanging upside down, so I rotated. Still looks odd. It was taken outside on the plant. I imagine the whole branch has been eaten by now. :)

Yes! A perfect choice for top honors! It was one of my 3 10's. Sorry about your tomatoes tho.... I don't think I'd like the interesting little fellow that much. But... I guess only fitting that he should live since he won you an award with his image :)

Excellent image! If it had a drastic color change in the background, I think this would have been a amazing image. Not that I have any room to talk. This is way better than my entry.

And did you let your model live, or were those someone else's tomatoes LOL? Very nice detail on this guy.

Great sharpness in the foreground, but tends to be slightly OOF to the right of this critter.
