I may be wrong but.....I believe she's wondering if she met the midnight deadline for "Mays" contest when she stated.

Booboo-Sage... I did a check and found Sages "Eastern time zone" is one hour AHEAD of Wisconsins "Central time" zone.
30 minutes after midnight (central time) would be 30 minutes after 1:00 in Sages (Eastern time). Time Convertor: Central - Eastern

If I am correct in the assumption....It appears the entries were an hour and 30 minutes PAST the midnight deadline for Mays contest.
Since they were taken in May, unfortunately they are "not eligible" for entry into Junes contest either.

I have a feeling we'll be seeing some pretty great "Flower" entries in "Next" Mays contest. THOSE ARE AWESOME!

Cute will come when I can get some decent photos of her 3 cubs. One of them is cinnamon colored!

Yes, the bear photos were taken in May. I didn't remember to upload them until last last night. I was hoping to make the cut-off time.

I got some grief one month when the winning pic I chose turned out not to be taken in the month of the contest.
What do you all think about allowing a couple days to a week after the close of a month for pix taken late in the month, like BooBoo's, to get posted? I was thinking about doing that before but hadn't gotten to ask you all. It could start with June. Maybe "all June entries must be posted by July 5th". I realize it's difficult for everyone who takes some contest-worthy shots to meet that midnight deadline. I'd be fine with that. As long as the pix taken as posted to the correct month's thread.

What say you all?

I think the month should be enough time. Let the bears in this time but stick to the rules after this. The note comes out to let people know the new month is starting. But I'm fairly new here so I shouldn't say too much.
