My congrats to Utkin and all the participants as well. It's looking at the fine workmanship throughout the contest that's got me interested in the "bug" again. It's been quite a few years since I've had the "fever" . . . You guys have rekindled that interest. Thank you. Great job.

By the way, that bee looks like the sucker that zapped me last summer. Glad to see he's been "transformed". What can you do about the rest of his family?
