A wonderful study that stands on its own and outside the challenge as an outstanding image. Congratulations on your top ten finish.

hairy critter.

Wow - very nice. And just a wee bit creepy!

Wow! What an amazing creature and what a great choice for this challenge. It's really hard to really get a handle on where the light source is - perhaps it's a touch too soft to provide a clearly backlit effect - so there is no glowing effect on/ through all those magical bristles. Simplicity of composition is excellent.

This is beautiful. You can see every little fuzzy detail. Nice subdued colors. I like the title too. 8

Whoa! That's a really nice macro. Perfect subject to take full use of lighting. Detail and focus look spot-on. Nice work
