Right - as my winning image was of a couple of wee beasties, I think I shall set this as the new weeks challenge - don't all groan at once Smile

Get out there and see if you can find something that will stay still long enough to get a photo - if they're occupied as mine were then it'll be easy as they had better things to think about than a camera pointing at them Smile

Meanwhile the Rules:

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. All images must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. The challenge runs from 8pm on the Sunday and runs until 8pm the following Sunday.
4. Only one upload per member.
5. Please feel free to comment on the entries once judging is complete.
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week challenge and the judge’s decision is final.
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week.
8. Have Fun!

IL might just notice - now what's wrong with bugs and beasties? I thought this was supposed to be a challenging challenge? Tongue

Not if no-one snitches.Wink

One was merely exercising ones democratic right to protest - albeit in jest - at the choice. At my age getting down on all fours to snap bugs and beasties entails getting up again afterwards...and that's when the problems begin...Blush
That alone is challenging enough.Grin

I never get down on all fours to photograph bugs and beasties - that's why I make sure all my cameras have nice tilting screens on them so I merely have to bend over! I too find getting up again somewhat challenging - and getting down - so I avoid it at all costs Smile

Well I found a beastie and took some photos (posted in the main gallery) but this was yesterday so will have to go on another bug hunt. Smile

All my beasties seem to have gone to bed 'cos it's pouring with rain. Shame. Wink

Ah yep - that is a problem. I'm not working tomorrow and am hoping it brightens up enough to draw the beasties out. I'm not holding my breath though!

No pressure on you though, Al, you don't have to come up with an entry for your own challenge.Wink

True and I take bug pics every day at this time of year. Mostly in the garden Smile

Well there are plenty of slugs and snails eating my daisies now - due to it raining today Smile

Having wondered what this weeks challenge is and then remembering that I set it, I thought it an appropriate time to give you all a little nudge - still plenty of time to go wee beastie hunting!
