Add a Photo-observation and Win!

Many of you are on the hunt for the prizes for naturalist of the year announced in our last post. Now, by popular demand, we're starting a monthly photo-observation contest here at the Vermont Atlas of Life. We'll choose four photos from observations each month and post them here. Photo observations will be chosen on artistic, scientific and overall "wow" impact. It might be a beautiful shot, an amazing sighting captured, a neat behavior, or whatever catches the editor's eye. We'll ask for a volunteer editor each month to select the four finalists. Next month's editor is Kyle Jones. Let us know if you'd like to be the editor for March. To vote, you simply write a comment for the one you like most. The photograph with the most votes wins.

Vote for January! Voting closes in one week.

1. I love these tracks in the snow. So January.

All birds? :) I guess plants are a bit drab this time of year. Anyway, tough choice but I think I am going with #2. I love the way the cardinal seems to be steeling itself against the snow.

Can I vote for myself? Actually, I don't want to anyway. My vote goes to #4, Jane Ogilvie's beautiful Common Merganser picture.

I'm going with #2 as well. Never get tired of cardinal shots in winter.

1. I love the whole tracking scene when not much else is going on (visibly) in winter. All great photos though.

All worthy pictures, but I go with Pine Grosbeak... it's been so nice to have them back this winter, I feel like that pic is one of the ways I'll remember winter 2012/13.
