Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
I know what I would say -- Its probably not from this planet. And what does does it eat and pass thru that skinny neck to fill its huge stomach? Possibly mimicking a poisonous red berry. Great spotting Richard! Beautiful photography!
What could I say... it's not beautiful, but it's a beauty!
Super clear shots.
