Agromeck Photo Editor Katherine Hoke said:
Georgia did a nice job of photographing the University’s insect museum. This photo is effective mainly because of composition. The multicolored butterfly creates a striking break in pattern from the yellow butterflies surrounding it.  The two large insects on either side work as framing elements to create leading lines that draw the readers eyes from the bottom to the top of the image. This photo is a wonderful example of when macro shots are appropriate in photojournalism.
