Was hoping to get a shot like this today, but the strong wind didn't help.  :(

I have to say - this is going to be a hard to judge looking at the entries submitted so far!
I suspect the winner will achieve it my a single vote or by having posted first!

I would like to be able to comment on the pictures themselves too - that way the the compliments and observations stay with the images long after the competition has faded from our consciousness.

I had a difficult time making up my mind. I chose Dave's in the end because it made me smile, but Andrew's picture came a very close second for me.

It's a shot of the Damselfly's shadow on the leaf whereas, a silhouette would be a shot towards the light, so the subject was black. Thanks for considering my shot.  :tup:
