I am not sure that a black and white conversion is enough to change a pregnant crayfish's a** into fine art, but what the heck. Actually, I don't know that pregnant is the right term as she apparently carries the eggs on the exterior of the shell. Anyhow, not great but submitted under the deadline!

It is the last minute, but I took my camera on a tour of the backyard to see what I could turn up for the competition. This shot was taken using the Kiron 105mm macro at 1:1. Most of you will probably guess what it is (I know Penolta will) but if you are left wondering scroll down for a more distant shot.

I'm a little disappointed with myself. I intended to try and get something interesting for the challenge but nothing really seemed to cut it. I had one that I kind of liked which would have maybe been stretching the rules a bit, but I chickened out and chose a safe image. Here's a brown frog with a green head:

Wow! These last minute entries are really going to make the voting difficult.

Corpsy - the detail in the eye of your frog is beautiful. I'd put it in the interesting category, too.

It's a frog's head, with emphasis on the eye. If the challenge was to take shots of faces I doubt shots including necks and shoulders would be disqualified. Somewhere between a whole frog and a single frog molecule there's a middle ground that would be considered frog detail. Let me know when I get it right:




Is this better? Or do I have to go all the way to:




Am I warm yet?




Just say when.

This is a part of a machine that I took at work today. It looks wicked, but does its job pretty well.

Just so you know, this is a Trackmobile used to move empty rail cars around our yard. Here is a full shot of the front.
