    Who needs "barmadillos", when you have butterflies around? Congrats on your top ten!

    Perfect choice of entry. The focus on the subject is a bit soft, though. In my top ten.

    Not unsympathetic but I think I'd rather have your chiggers than our ticks. They look very similar but the tick burrows right into the flesh and is difficult to remove. It also carries Lyme disease and i wouldn't wish that on anybody.

Beautiful shot but could do with more light as it looks a bit flat. I particularly like the handling and composition of the background that matches the insect so well..

    The chigger bites were worth it to get a photo as beautiful as this one. BTW what's a chigger?

    You get my sympathy vote and also my vote from an excellent photo. Good sharpness, well framed, beautiful colors...and good timing before it flew away.

    I thought there would be lots of birds and butterflies but no! This one is beautiful. Sorry about the bites.

    Nice butterfly shot. And you have my sympathy. I am lucky enough to have these in our garden and accessible without getting bitten!

    My Paypal account is.... Worth every penny. Nicely framed and taken with a nice background and depth of focus. Sharpen just a bit to bring some detail into the wing scales and it would top my list but you get my vote all the same.

    Sharp image. The color seems a bit muted on my monitor. In my favorites.

    I am ignoring the title debate in the forums and concentrating on the pictures
chigger bites i assume are flying insects
love the composition and framing and on theme
you have my deepest sympathy vote having spent recent times in a swampy area of the world

    You don't need any sympathy votes. It's a butterfly, starts with a B. I don't need to look at the title to know that it's a butterfly. So, well done, you have my vote.

    Nicely done. Clearly begins with B.

    You have my sympathy on the chiggers. Try coating the bites with clear nail polish. It helps a bit. The butterfly is nicely captured with wings fully spread. The image is a bit flat and soft. It could use a contrast boost and perhaps some sharpening. In my TT.
