Good nature study of what appears to be a dead striped June beetle, Polyphylla.

Thanks Aimee! The funny part about this one is that it really isn't one of my favorites. Oh well, I'll take what I can get. :o)

I'll admit Jeff it's not what I would say is some of your best work but glad you are getting recognition for your photography regardless.

It can be frustrating though when they pick something over a photo your entered and think is really awesome. I've had that feeling over the past few months. This month I'm pretty happy with their picks though. I'll never understand!

Although last month I did something different. I entered only the photos that I thought were worthy of finalists. I guess that guarantees I'll be happy with any finalist I get! This month I'm back to random entries of whatever so we'll see what happens when finalists come out next month.

Your baby shots though I would put up with some of your best work...I really hope you think about doing more with babies! :~)

I'm with you 100%, Aimee. Some times it just doesn't make sense. I guess that's to be expected when a big part of the judging is sooo subjective.

I appreciate your compliments my baby shots, I'm glad they got recognized. Portraits is something that I've struggled with, but I'm trying to improve.
