    Weekly Challenge May 18 - 24: Bug(s), Insect(s) or Butterfly(s}

    "Bug(s), Insect(s) or Butterfly(s)" - (nikonbill)'s Choice

    Any or all of the three. Let's see how creative you can be! Color, B&W, HDR...anything goes!

    DO NOT SHOOT OR POST IMAGES UNTIL WEDNESDAY May 18
    This early announcement of the topic is to give a little think time, before the challenge begins. Photos must be taken and submitted between 00:00 UTC of the start date and 23:59 UTC of the end date.




    The Rules

    1. Photos must be captured with a Nikon and appear in the thread with EXIF info in order to be considered for the challenge. If the forum EXIF viewer does not show for any reason, listing the camera and capture date/time below the photo is acceptable. Listing exposure info, lens & focal length is encouraged so others can learn.

    2. Any photo submitted for a weekly challenge must be taken during the dates specified in the challenge thread.

    3. Only one photo entry per member for each week, unless otherwise noted.

    4. All regularly active members of Nikonites are allowed to participate, including moderators and administrators.

    Voting

    During the submission & like periods, please click the Thanks/Like button to vote for your favorite images. You can vote for as many as you want! At the end of the week, you will have the opportunity to vote again for the top 3 photos for this challenge!

    There will be no cash or prizes awarded for the Weekly Photo Challenges, unless specifically noted by the site administrator.

    Any photo will be accepted for the challenge. Edited or straight out of the camera, it does not matter. You are left with complete freedom to do whatever genre of photography you wish to do, and your own interpretation of the challenge subject.

    To be pedantic, bugs and butterflies are insects.

    True bugs are insects of the order Hemiptera. Butterflies are of the suborder Rhopalocera of the order Lepidoptera. So, really, insects completely covers bugs and butterflies.

    Bob, you are correct, but in this weekly challenge "Bugs", "Insects" and even "butterflies" are being used in generic terms which even includes arachnids (spiders) and moths, and any other creepy crawly etc. someone feels fits the category. Ha!! Let's see your photo of a centipede or millipede.
