If you have an image of a bug that doesn't belong in one of the other categories, then this is the place for them, provided they live on the land. Examples include all aquatic bugs, shield bugs, cicadas, cockroaches, grasshoppers, lacewings, stoneflies, praying mantises, and earwigs.
If you need to clarify whether a species you’ve shot should be included in this category, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the species.
Highly magnified imagery, such as close-ups of faces and body parts, can be submitted to this category, but is more likely to excel in the 'Extreme Close-Ups’ category.
