I have also entered a second photo in the Green Party of Ontario's calendar contest. Well, actually there are 11 of my photos entered. But this one is doing very well being about 40 votes behind the Long-eared Owl photo (see my blog right below this one) and has 216 votes and just checking the Owl has 251.http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
Approximately 93 people entered 460 or so photos in total for the calendar contest. I am hoping one of these two are in the final 12 for the 2012 edition.
I waited all Spring for this photo I got of a Raccoon family in a tree cavity and I am very happy with it. It's just not something you see everyday and if you miss them this Spring, you have to wait almost another year for another chance.
So, if you have a moment, please click here and then click on the hearts for your rating. I should add that this contest runs until July 31, 2011 and people can vote daily on any photos they want to win. Hint hint. :) Well, only if you have the time and feel this is calendar worthy.
Thanks again! I will post the results when I know.
Here's a couple others of mine that were entered with a good number of votes but nothing like the Owl and Raccoon family.
A pretty little male Eastern Bluebird I photo'd at Point Pelee National Park who has 120 votes as of today.
A pair of Barn Swallows in a mating moment with 85 votes.
A Great Blue Heron I see often near my home also has 120 votes.
