i'm totally blown away by the reception this image has received .. and nearly didnt enter it in the challenge as i felt it wasnt perfect enough for the voters ..

i was actually shooting insects in the grass and noticed this thistle which had survived being pulled out as they are considered a pest where i live ..

of course i thought of textures .. the spider's webs were an added bonus ..
i lined up my shot so that some yellow fireweed flowers were oof in the background .. not that easy as it was a bit windy ..

its 5 hours till rollover .. and i'm sitting on 7 atm .. no matter what happens in the intervening hours i'm very happy ..

thankyou everyone for your comments and votes .. really appreciated .. xx ..

after rollover ..
the yellow totally suits this image .. couldnt be more perfect ..
thanks all .. xx

Woot woot! No insects, no doggy, no pretty selfie - just a ribbon-winning weed. Raw talent. :)

I'm one of your 10's and you're my "other" 10 - gave one to the Blue, too, and simply could not choose between these two, very different images. Beautiful work, Roz. Congratulations on the Yellow.

Funny how you got no 9's looks kind of odd ;)

You're so good at macro's, especially this one, and I didn't even pick it as yours!

Congrats!
