Tony, the octopus simply amazes me! I have never seen a photo such as the camels in the Sahara; beautiful!

Ruth, your owl and bird with a headache delight! Great choices. 

Dallas, I like the colors, shapes, diversity of these critters. 

Dominic, in the pink blossom, is that an insect or part of the flower? A beautiful image. Wish I had a few thousand of that ladybug, I have a huge infestation of aphids on the helleborus this year.
