    I have to echo what Elliott wrote. This is a fantastic macro shot. But both the dragonfly and the flower has so much intricate patterns AND colors which did not fit the challenge description.

    dave, you need to edit out that last line of your comment. obviously your thinking is spot on with these challenges.... eight entries and six of them in the top ten finishes!
a lot of different takes on the theme. i think what held me back on placement of yours was the line in the description of the challenge that read... "freedom from complexity or intricacy". the details on the insect being very intricate.
it is a great shot along with your other nature shots that are hard to top.

    Thanks for the comments and votes, but I have to say I find it fascinating that a bug on a flower isn't simple to some people.

I guess I looked at it as a whole, two subjects, a bug and a flower, while others wanted to dissect the subjects detail.

Which subject should have been left out, the dragonfly or the flower to fit this challenge better?
I guess my way of thinking doesn't fit well in these challenges.

    Incredible shot. My highest pick photographically but I don't think it meets the challenge as well as some others. Well done.

    This is a really lovely photo but it doesn't work for me as an example of simplicity.

    Beautifully-shot example of simple photographic presentation, but the Challenge brief asks for a simple subject, and your two seem pretty complex to me. Love the color, though.

    Absolutely gorgeous photograph. Simple in concept, complex in the detail.

    This is a beautiful macro of a colorful d-fly. Beautifully photographed and composed. I'm not sure if it is simple, though.
