Goose Lake Prairie Nature Photo Contest

GLP had it's 2nd annual contest last weekend. I like this contest because you can enter up to 3 entries per catagory. I take advantage of that in a few of the catagories including animals, both color and B&W, and Goose Lake itself, photos taken within Goose Lake Prairie. I entered 9 in those catagories. There is also landscapes & plants, but I had nothing to submit this time around.

Well, I expected to capture a few places as in the past, but I didn't expect Best of Show! This picture grabbed:

1st Place Color Animal

Best in Color Photograph

Best of Show

Which also means that 6 more of the photos entered, placed 2nd, 3rd or Honorable.

Anyway, it was a thrill for me and I just had to share my bounty with my inner blogworld!
