I feel like this Betta is saying "Dear god! It's gonna eat me!" lol his pose looks terrified in human terms, with his big eyes and pale body, and since he's not flared it adds to the feeling LOL
Awww don't worry :( There's always another photo contest, and your's just happened to be the very last image posted, it doesn't mean the other people with 0 votes were any better then you.
Good luck! you Betta is amazing and cute!
Kinda random and off subject but I can't wait to take a photo of my fish for a school project lol I'll probably not submit them into the contest though, I only do snapshots for the contest. It will be awesome to do a repetitive shape with Betta fish and then throw it off with my cichlid LOL
