Congratulations to all the winners very nice pictures. I just realized that the prey mantis has another bug, I think that makes the picture even better. Awesome job guys. Also, thank you to those who donated prizes. I didn't even enter the competition and I'm still thankful for your willingness to share.

Incorrect! :evil:
Superuser "Moof" always donates utrics to the top finisher in the EU regardless of overall place! I was just wondering who that person was.

Yup - it's a brown marmorated stink bug, a really nasty-smelling bug that invades our home each fall - hundreds of bugs climbing all over our windows & doors trying to get inside (and many succeed). If I could, I'd give this praying mantis a medal!

In regards to the Mantis Photo, there's a good Youtube video of a PM "rescuing" a bee from a Venus Flytrap
