Syrphid

Short version: I didn’t win!

Slightly longer version: Don’t bring insects to a bird contest!

Longest version: Check out all the great entries here, as well as the winning entries here.

I think I did a good job, representing the ONLY two insects out of 259 images (and there was only two other invertebrates: a slug and a crab).

All in all, it was a fun exercise, and a good way to get people out with their cameras. By the way, the nature category had by far the most entries, so it is heartening to see what people find truly inspiring at Stanley Park.
