Stop by our affiliates and see what they have cookin' :w00t:


It has been mentioned before that we are looking for higher quality submissions.  I don't like to turn anyone down, but the time has come to raise the standards here at BugZoo.  Some of the images we are looking for:
:) Macros / Close-ups with lots of detail
:) Creativity in art or photography
:) Images that pop with the use of light and shadow
:) Show us something unique or different
:) Photos taken from interesting angles or viewpoints

Do not submit:
:( Photos out of focus
:( Snapshots where the insect is too far away
:( Art that shows little effort
:( Mediocre shots with no visual interest
:( Positioning of the subject (sometimes the Rule of Thirds helps)

The insect should dominate the photo.  Submit your best stuff and look at what we showcase here to see what we're looking for.

The submission folder is set up for auto accept.  Hopefully, no more expired submissions. :)

I wanted to submit my art, but the group will only accept submissions to "Bees Wasps", and I was trying to submit to the appropriate folder (submission folder). Is there something I'm doing wrong?

No, it's a DA glitch.  Trying to fix it.
