thanks Suzi - this little chap was particularly obliging :)

many thanks Tom - the only thing I don't like about the NPC is that the prize for winning is a load of extra work ... :( (2nd would be great ;))

thanks Mats - it was a tiny little baby snake, so the slim depth of field is almost inevitable to get enough magnification - but it actually helps the image here, I agree :)

Congratulations Graham!! A very worthy shot from a very worthy photographer!

And now the future of Panoramio depends on you selecting the perfect subject for next month :D (lolol, don't worry. Moderating really isn't difficult or time consuming, and lots of fun to see how others interpret your subject!)

Ha-ha can I pick-em or what?

kamalyn is trying to ease your apprehensions, I on the other hand am more truthful, moderating is very difficult and full of trauma and grief and mental anguish.

Kidding aside well done Graham.
