  • My name is Sandra McCabe and I live in Australia. My camera is an Olympus E-420 with dedicated macro lens. The image is a seed pod from a geranium. Only one variety has these feathery seeds and once dew makes contact, it closes up like a fan. The background colour has been enhanced to bring out the sparkle of the water drops as well as brightening.

  • I thank the judge for giving me the mark of excellence. I am wildlife photographer Professional in France and I live in Boulange en Moselle. I realized this picture with a Nikon D 810 camera and a macro lens Nikon 100mm 2.8 VR. This mantis was placed on the branch of a fir tree to wash. I waited for this moment to trigger or she held her antenna to clean it.
