Backyard Bugs - Photography Contest [62 entries]

Two to tango Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
75%
Contest goal:

Get out in the yard or nearby woods and show us your best shot of a creepy, crawly or flying bug or insect. One catch to this theme is that no dragonflies are allowed as we have had contests for this particular insect several times in the past, besides it's hard to beat a cool shot of a dragonfly with a spider shot no matter how cool! Also, no captured bug or insect! Must be shot in its natural habitat! Have fun and don't get bitten or stung!!
If your shot is a really close-up macro, please add a photo to the SBS, that show it was taken outside.


Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

Elle1248: is a butterfly a bug? ( 5 years and 1545 days ago )
SaHdeeQ: no, i don't think so ( 5 years and 1545 days ago )
friiskiwi: "A butterfly is a mainly day-flying insect "
To me butterflies would be on topic, but I can't be sure, and we have had butterfly contests.
"....show us your best shot of a creepy, crawly or flying bug or insect. One catch to this theme is that no dragonflies are allowed"
I would hold off on uploading butterflies until whoever mods this contests say they are O.K. ( 5 years and 1545 days ago )
kyricom: Why wouldn't a butterfly be a "flying bug?" If butterflies aren't bugs (insects), what are they? ( 5 years and 1545 days ago )
rbsgrl: A butterfly is most definitely a bug/insect. The only exclusion is the dragonfly. ( 5 years and 1545 days ago )
MnMCarta: Does that mean we can't enter dragonfly's? BAHAHAHAHA ( 5 years and 1544 days ago )
FallingHorse: What about spiders? They are creepy crawlies ( 5 years and 1544 days ago )
Contest Moderator: I will allow butterflies and spiders. ( 5 years and 1542 days ago )
