The Challenge

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY As we had two winners in the last challenge I have decided to have a dual subject challenge. You may choose either.

This is a challenge to choose your best image of a dragonfly or a close up of an eye(any species) as its subject.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Choose the image that you like the best, considering composition and clarity. You may choose more than one.

Rewards & Prizes

Plaudits, Kudos and Back Slapping.
Also, Banner for Winner and a Top Ten Banner if there are more than 15 entrants. The winner will choose the subject for the next months challenge.

Additional Information

The image must be approved in the group prior to submission to challenge otherwise it will be removed without notice. The winner of the challenge will be requested to provide a challenge avatar for the next month challenge. In the case of Joint Winners up to 3 Joint winners will be accepted. If there are more than three the group the host will nominate the final three winners. The hosts decision is final.
