A set of photo-contest winners

For your viewing pleasure, here's a Flickr set of the 2005 photo-contest winners.

If you view the set as a slideshow, you'll miss the captions that identify the bird and the photographer. If you want those details, it's best to click through the set. Enjoy!

The winning images in the 2006 photo contest appear in the September/October issue, which should arrive in mailboxes in the next week or so.

The agony! The torture! The excitement!

On my commute home today, I called ahead to see if the new issue of Wildbird had arrived yet. I asked if there was a magazine in the mailbox for me. "A bird one?" she said. "Yes!" I said excitedly. "Yup, it's here", she said. I gasped and said "Open it and see if there are any pictures you recognize!" She replied, "No, I'll put it on your desk so you can do the honors."

I counted down the miles on the way home. 20 miles 15 miles. 10 miles. I pulled into the driveway, grabbed my things and dashed into the house to find a beautiful, pristine copy of ........another bird magazine that I take. *Sigh*

Maybe tomorrow. :)

Glad to oblige!

It was in my mailbox when I got home today. :)

I am excited to know the tidbit about the judges' looking at the eyes and beak for focus. I am relatively new to taking bird pictures compared to other subjects and that will help me considerably.

Thank you (and the judges) for all your hard work in the contest-- and for that tidbit about the judging.

*runs off to practice more*
