    What!? You didn't eat this? I'm disappointed. Hahahaha!

Congratulations, nice finish!

    This made me cringe! Congratulations on creating such a strong reaction.

    Congrats Juhani. I'm glad to see we share the same opinion of these delicacies LOL Memories of eating such things helped me make this my #1 pick.

    I did not even taste them. I gave them to the birds and squirrels.

    Not just a trendy trend. Apparently insects are going to play an increasing role in meeting the nutritional needs of the ever growing populations of our planet. I'm glad I don't need to take this up (yet) as it still seems exceedingly strange to me.
Good entry. Top few.

    This reminds me of survival training in the armed forces. Certainly served up a lot better but just as strange. Good choice for the challenge.

    This is so gross - which makes it a terrific choice for the theme. I understand the necessity to eat these things for survival, but I wouldn't be trying them out of curiosity.

    Though I selected this pic, it is not strange to parts of the world.

    I consider myself a very adventurous eater, trying just about anything. But, insects are one thing I haven't been able to bring myself to trying. Seeing this gives me the shivers. Good subject for the theme.

    Nice still life. Certainly meets the theme requirements; however, it would have been nice to see some human consumption. Maybe that is too much to ask for. In my favs.

    This is a really imaginative subject - how did they taste?
I think the idea of showing the sandwich is great!

I think the right-hand bowl does not add much to the picture - the insects are too much of a mass to see them clearly. It also stops you getting closer in to the sandwich. (and the perspective looks oddly different to the plate - or is that just me?)

Being closer in to the sandwich would allow us to see some of the detail of the bugs - maybe arranging them more clearly? Although the green striped tablecloth is nice, we do see a lot of it in this picture.

Your use of flash gives a very bright finish to the tomatoes and the plate. Maybe cutting the tomatoes in half and showing the cut side would have helped reduce the reflectiveness/ add texture?

    The photo is sharp and clear although I'm not a fan of flash. What would be really interesting would be a photo of someone taking a photo of their food in a restaurant.
