Tiger Swallowtail Outstretched
EDITOR'S PICK, betterphoto.com, August 2009
FINALIST, betterphoto.com August 2009, Animals category
Editor's Pick for betterphoto's monthly contest simply means that that image was noteworthy and has made the first cut into images that will be considered finalists in the contest.
For photos that made it to the Finalist round for August 2009, 886 were chosen as Finalists among the 22,300 total images that were entered that month.
I have to admit it's a little odd to me that this was chosen as a Finalist. There are so many images in the Animals category that I would consider better (including mine!), so I'm not quite sure why this was chosen . . . but I'll not look a gift horse in the mouth any more than that.
