Congratulations to the winners!!!! I was much impressed with those photos when they were initially presented, so the results of the contest include no real surprises.

Thank you! I did not expect to win, with all the fantastic photos this month. Congrats to jpdenk and scarecrowsdrm for their wonderful photos, too.

Check out my new spider wasp posting on the wasp thread. Not for the faint at heart. Doesn't anyone but me take wasp photos? I'm beginning to think I must be weird. Of course my family have been telling me that for years. (no fancy smilies for me right now, poor internet)

No you are not weird...at least not among this group.

I've taken wasp pictures before...and will again in the future if I see anything worthwhile.
