The Challenge

Who doesn’t love a butterfly? One of the most beautiful of all insects. Sadly, they will all soon disappear in most regions as seasons change. They will be missed.

“The caterpillar does all the work but the butterfly gets all the publicity”. ~ Rabindramath Tagore

Judging / Voting Criteria

Close-ups are prefered, as they usually fair best in contest like this. Although, far away shots should do well if the background is interesting, such as colorful flowers.

Please submit your highest quality work that stands up to RedBubble standards. Winning work should have great composition, lighting, color, depth of field, perfect focus and clarity, great design elements, and visual imapact.

Snapshots should not be winners in a challenge…but well planned, thought out images.
