Challenge: Insects II (Minimal Editing I*)
Camera: Canon PowerShot Pro1
Location: Austin, Tx
Date: Apr 15, 2007
Galleries: Nature, Macro
Date Uploaded: Apr 15, 2007

The common pill bug, or sow bug. They are everywhere here.

This guy was crawling up a white envelope I had scooped him up with.

Sharpen
Save for Web

I just found out in the forums insects only have six legs. (sigh) Oh well. I'm leaving it just to prove I can do a decent shot with no editing. ;~D

Judy,

I thought this was a wonderful shot, but I try to be strict on challenge definitions. If it would have been macro or bug you would have gotten at least an 8 from me. I was your only 1, so it didn't matter. Keep up the great "natural shots' Van

Great colors and clarity. Beautiful light and composition. No need for a butterfly to make this a stunning shot! One of the best in the challenge IMO. Bumping to 9.

Nice work!

I didn't mark your score down for not meeting the challenge, but I don't think that is technically an insect.

beautiful reflection on shell. would love to have seen close up fo face. very nice colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2007 07:15:57 PM
excellent. 8 for now. Well, dang, I need to be consistent here. I'm docking 2 points for not being a true insect. If any shot is going to fool the masses and do well without being an insect, this is it. Changing to 6.

I love the crisp colors and the simplicity. Nice angle and sharpness on the bug.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2007 04:39:42 PM
Oh my word.....count the legs....there's more than six....bet you some people are going to explode about that little fact. As for me I am just going to say, great shot and mark it accordingly
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2007 04:16:47 PM
Not really an insect I'm afraid - but it's a nice picture anyway, so I'll give you a 6... (would have been higher if you had met the challenge)

Reminds me of the acrobatic beetles on the movie, "It's a Bugs Life". Great detail. Good dof.

One of my faves of the challenge - and the only pill bug around. I have always loved these bugs. Nice clean detail, simple compostion, great colors. Bumping up to 9. Good luck!

I don't know if a "doodle" bug is an insect or not, but after trying to photo some myself this past week and having the little boogers roll up and roll away all I can say is WOW. What a great capture of the little buger! - 9
