was blown away by how well this photo was received .. i was definitely going to end up on my profile page .. without a doubt .. :)

then I experienced a drop from 7.5 to 7.1 with the last five votes i received before rollover ..

taking a huge dive in the last day of voting seems to be a common occurrence lately for well scoring images .. seems a bit 'strange' to me .. :(

thankyou so much for all the excellent comments during voting .. and being recognized .. not sure why i'm recognized as other ppl photograph long legged flies .. :)

There is no way this photo is less than a six. Those last votes were obviously from participants (see averages) and are suspect in nature.

Congratulations Roz, the Queen of Flies! Your insect macros are unmatchable, thatís why they are easily recognisable. Great use of shallow DOF here.

So impressively head-on. So poised for take-off, like on the deck of an aircraft carrier. The eyes are so intense that all else fades off to a blur. Swaddled in a dream.
One of three personal favorites in the challenge.
