I chose the first shot but posted them both showing the action.

Dap, please let MILTA know where to send your prize honey! :)

And Wildwatcher has the runner-up spot with this great mushroom shot!

Actually the spider caught a fly. Members of the Physocephala genus mimic wasps.

Thank you!

Congrats to you both, dap and ww!! Both of you had outstanding photos!

First I want to say thank you...and second I want to say that I was shocked to find out that I won--MrILoveTheAnts sent me a PM, so I opened that first. I hadn't even seen which photo won. I told Jeff, and he guessed right. This is my sweetest win to date! ;) Yum...my mouth is already watering.

Congratulations, ww...I'm feeling kind of bad that I get the honey...I had already decided what to say if I got runner up (which I thought I might): "Can I at least get a spoonful?" If you were coming out our way for the meet-up, I'd make sure you'd get a taste.

Thank you for pointing that out. Last year, I was getting pretty good at recognizing bee-mimicking flies...maybe the action shot threw me on this one.

Well, I learned...and then, apparently forgot what I'd learned. So, there is hope for you to do the same. ;)

Thank you, kchd.

I actually had your saddleback caterpillar photo pegged as one of the likely winners. Yours were quite outstanding as well.

Honestly, looking back over the competition, I have no idea how you ever make a choice. There were so many excellent photos. What a great bunch of photographers we have here on WG.

I'm glad that you picked the first one, because that was the one I chose first to enter...but when I needed a 5th, I thought I'd better go with more of a close-up.

It was some seriously stiff competition in August!!
I think the honey was drawing flies... (snicker)
