Honorable mention for this week's Reader SunShots series "Balance" goes to Hannah Welle for a picture of a swallowtail caterpillar perched on the stem of a plant. The photographer took this image with a Canon Powershot G9. Here is a critique by Baltimore Sun director of photography, Robert Hamilton: "The vibrant colors make this picture standout. By using a shallow point of focus, the photographer was able to make the caterpillar stand out even though it was green against green."
