Grand Jury Winner

"Wow! For me this has all of the elements of an outstanding macro photograph. The scene reminds me of a little village on a hill in a tropical paradise, the bokeh in the background like lights in the distant city. The composition and warm tones are very beautiful and result in a very successful image." - Brad Olson

Runner Up

"The colors, patterns and texture are so interesting and this guy is the Zoolander of frogs! The green tones in the background work well to underscore the punches of color." - Brad Olson

Finalist

"I don't know much about bugs, but I know what I like! This is macro photography in expert mode. At this level of detail, the caterpillar is equally beautiful and frightening, but this image is undeniably a treat. Well done!" - Brad Olson
