I see the eyes and a long, split beard...but I thought maybe he was wearing a crown or some headgear.

Okay...I'm feeling a bit better about you, jack....maybe you are not ""...you had me a bit concerned at first.

I think you're BOTH nuts!!!

I tried to see something but all I saw was a beetle I'd missed in the photo the first time around.

LOL! Hey! Use your imagination!

I saw the beetle and the ants, and, seriously, I started to worry just a little bit about jack until I spotted the "eyeballs" in the flowers.

I'm sure retouching the photo to help you see the face(s) is not doing much for my argument that I'm not as nuts as jack seemed to be.

[BTW, after drawing the face on (I didn't retouch the eyes at all), I realize that what I thought was a long split beard is really some kind of tunic. ]

I think I just took my second entry this morning. At the time, I didn't realize how clearly the subject would come out which allowed me to crop it and retain the clarity. It is not as attractive as the frog...although, the frog may find it attactive on some level.

Actually I think they look more like surgeons wearing face masks awaiting haircuts under a drape.

Okay.

~smile~ LOL. I got the surgical masks, but you kind of lost me with the haircuts.

Anyway, I took a couple of shots, and showed the best one to Jeff, who unfortunately doesn't venture out in the yard with me very often to explore the wonders of our property. Looking into the LCD viewer, he remarked that it was beautiful and that I should enter it into the WG photo contest! (Hey, he has been paying attention!)

Unfortunately, when I loaded it onto the computer, I could see that the body was in focus but the face was not. So, I went back out to take more. My subject kept that pose for a while, until I must've got a little too close for comfort or overstayed my welcome. Nonetheless, I got a better shot.

So, up it goes, or I'll never hear the end of it. (Not sure I would've thought to enter this one on my own.)
Fantastic photo! My favorite so far.
