    Well we have a runaway winner with 25 votes ... Me. with my close up of a Praying Mantis taken whilst camping on the Dampier Peninsular.

    In second place we have our pommie mate Onkey with 18 votes for his close up of a Hawk Moth in his back yard.

    And in third place Onkey makes another appearance with 17 votes for his colourful green on pink close up of a grasshopper.

    We have had some great entries this month from a number of folk & of course given the subject matter the majority were close ups. There was one photo which although not 'on the podium' which caught my eye however, it was post number 35 from Bushranger which when enlarged took on a completely different character. The composition with the colours of fly in perfect focus drawing your eye straight to it I believe is worth a 'special mention'.......... not something I generally do.

    Well done to all who participated.
    I'll announce the April comp topic shortly.

    Thanks for the mention Cuppa. It was a photo opportunity that I wish I had a zoom lense of some sort to get a closer look. You know how flies react if and when you get close to them. I tried to enlarge and save the photo through Paint program for a better picture to add to the competition.
