Taken on Congress Avenue bridge, where 100s of people gather every evening to watch millions of bats fly from under the bridge where they sleep all day, to go hunt for mosquitoes.

Unfortunately, either the bats were slacking, or the mosquito population has skyrocketed after all this rain we've been getting. Shoo, west Nile virus, shoo...

So we have a challenge to take pictures of people on the street, and commenters complain that it's a snapshot? They would've preferred a staged shot, perhaps? Sigh.

I didn't vote, but this would've gotten a 5 or 6 from me. It's a nice enough picture of a couple of folks obviously enjoying themselves.

Very snap-shotish. The strong flash and the noise really detract from this image.

Well, he didn't listen, did he? I would have liked to have gotten a sense of what it was they were doing here. Can't tell from the subjects (except that he appears to be looking off into the distance at something) and there are no clues in the background. Is she taking her own picture, or a picture of whatever is in front of them?

I like that they both have cameras, but it seems he's shooting something else while she's shooting them. A fun shot.
