when i took this photo .. which is a bit of a miracle .. i immediately thought of the dichotomy challenge .. but googled it just to make absolutely sure that living and dying were a dichotomy ... and of course they totally are ..

i was extremely happy with the way this image turned out and excited to enter it in the challenge ..

a few hours till rollover and i just got a 3 vote .. which took me from low 7's to high 6's .. that's ok .. i know that not everyone is a fan of insects ..

my aim in life is to change that attitude .!!. lol .. ;)

Another amazing image. Beautiful and delicate in the subject but with your color choice of B/W and with lighting to enhance the dichotomy itself into something stunning and beautiful is true artistry.

Amazing, Roz, I did not vote on this challenge so I did not see this. Congrats on the well deserved Blue (in spite of the "nasty" with a 3 vote! Must be a real hater of the flies :)
