1 more day of voting: This is unreal. I didn't enter anything in over a year and then this happens. I could see the addiction starting all over again.

2.5 hours left for voting and I am at a 7.7. Gunna watch a movie to pass the time. I already sent my original RAW file in.

Ok. I can cross the blue ribbon off my list. Thank you.

Congrats on the Bluey.
Just wondering, I have just brought into the world of macro with the Nikon 60mm 2.8D, was this shot taken with just that or extensions too?
Just want to know as I am new to macro and am fascinated by the whole thing.
This is an awesome image, Well done!

A lot of good photos in this challenge and then I get to this one and I see the blue ribbon winner. Sets the bar higher and gives us all something to work towards! Love the solid yellow background - do you hold a card behind the bug?
