Disagree with images being recategorized.

I strongly disagree with these two images being recategorized. I placed them in Nature Up Close and it doesn't get any closer than that. They were both at the end of the 100 duels and were doing great. I think that a close-up of an insect is properly situated in either the Insects & Spiders category or in Nature Up Close as well. Both are valid. On the other hand there are lots of pics of bunches of trees, rivers and lakes and such in Nature Up Close which remain in that category... what is Up Close about that? If a close-up of an insect is not Nature Up Close, then what is?? I am unhappy about this, and I feel it is not fair. Both my images were going near 700 points... probably the reason why they were reported.
These are the images:

You should really read the description of the categories, before you get more upset for nothing ... insects are not Nature Up Close, they belong in the Animal category and they were not reported because of high score, but because they were in the wrong category ...

Raymond I go through the top 200 or so pics in the Nature Up Close most days. I remember leaving a message on your pic. The reporting had nothing to do with the score. I had nothing in contention for a award yesterday. People sometimes don't understand and assume the category without reading the definition. It was nothing against you or your pics high score status.

Hi Mark, thanks for your reply. I am sure the report was nothing against my pics or high score, but I still think that a close-up of an insect is properly situated in either the Insects & Spiders category and/or in Nature Up Close. It does not say otherwise in the description of either category, which I did read thoroughly before posting. While there is not a specific Sub-category for Insects in Nature Up Close, how can a close up of an insect NOT be Nature Up Close?? A spider's web pic can be categorized in both Animal/Insects and/or Nature Up Close/Webs, but a close up of an insect can't?? Maybe Pixoto team should revise and make this options clearer.

Yes Tupu, I did submit the dragonfly earlier this year to the Insects & Spiders category. Going through my images, I thought that this image deserved another chance and a better score. I decided to resubmit it and chose to change the category into another valid option - at least I thought it was so- were it would maybe do better. And it did, way better! It was going near 700 points! No mistake... I thought I was doing the right fair play. Regretfully, it was recategorized, much to my disagreement as I maintain. Thanks for your comment.
