Well first thanks to all participants, as all your photos were great!

So sorry if anyone missed out on the last minute submissions.

3rd place goes to: "Best of this mornings shots" by David_S
The colorful red and dark background helped your subject.

2nd place goes to: "Giant Silkworm Moth" by Pupsocket
Nice colors and placement, of an interesting subject.

1st place goes to: "Taming the Dragon" by hooker771
