Thanks for the honor of runner-up, but I have to decline. I posted that image in response to havalotta's Cicada nymph photo to show what follows next in their reproductive process. My photo wasn't intended to be an entry in the contest, and was not shot in July, it was from May of 2007, so it's ineligible.

Sorry about the misunderstanding. I should have made it very plain that it wasn't intended to be an entry in the July contest.

John

Wow! Thanks, y'all. I've been really enjoying my new camera. I thought I might get "humorous mention" or somesuch for my raccoons, but didn't expect to win. All the photos were great.

Thank you, Staff...but I had nothing entered in this contest. I believe that my half of the congratulations should go to JPDenk who apparently didn't officially enter anything--but did post an excellent picture worthy of winning.

(I think the JPD and DaPJwy may have confused you. =) )
