I voted for the spider, it's eyes are really focused very well and I've never seen a spider look so intently...

Also, I don't know how I missed the first round but I'm glad I saw the finals before they ended.
Great work everyone!

(14,559 posts)There were 30 entries in the preliminaries and they were equally as engaging as these ten finalists.

Hats off to everybody who enters this or any other exposition. Nothin' but the best!
