It's fun and fascinating to read your solving process and the thinking behind it, @Audslibrary. I have mixed feelings about paying attention to the leaderboard. It seems to have nudged me into a formulaic approach that's somewhat at odds with appreciating the artwork. But you've so vividly described an approach that's closer to the way I do physical jigsaw puzzles and you still did very well timewise. I'm glad you decided on your course, too. Even more, I'm glad you SAW this puzzle. Thank you!


AND I see now that I was right in the middle of the pack. . . I've always been on the very bottom. Of course, I am the only one who sees how I do. . .but at 15, I was my very best to date. I'm glad I decided the course I took.


Carol, this was most interesting. I decided from the get-go that the moth was the intruder on the lovely scene. . .and it was easy to pick out the pieces of the moth because of their stark difference in tone and color, and set them aside. Then I worked the scene itself. . .and finally flew him in to settle up it. Wonderful. Thank you.
