I knew that one was a winner, havalotta! Congratulations on your double win! Is that other one a porcupine?

Congrats to Maggy also, and is that a muskrat?

Congrats on the Booboobears too!

OH WOW.........I can't believe it. I actually won first place! My first FIRST!
Dave.....I'm so excited!!!!!! Thanks for picking not only one but two of mine!!! Whoo Hoooo......
Congratulations to Maggie and Booboo too!



I received my first digital camera back in December and learned how to take photos.
I hardly knew a thing about computers back then....
April 4th 2009 -I joined W.G. sight and immediately began picking up knowledgeable tid bits here and there.
My buddy LORAX taught me how to post photos and from that point on there was no stopping me.
Thank you LORAX I couldn't have gotten this award without you.

I'd also like to thank another buddy-- FEERLESS for answering every single one of about a gazillion questions as I learned how to maneuver in the sight....Here is one of the very first responses Feerless sent to me.....

[Quote] I see. You did learn how to post a photo. And, you take nice photos too.
When posting future photos to that thread for the photo of the month contest; try to add photos that are of wildlife, birds, bugs, natural areas, native plants and other native vegetation, vegetable gardens, etc... in keeping with the theme of our site. I can see by the quality of your photos that you will be taking home a photo of the month prize sometime soon.[Quote]

Well After taking a mere 27,516 photos we've finally hit the big time. Ok time for me to step down from the mike....But I just HAD to thank you all ...Feerless, Lorax, Staff, Equill, biigblue, Stoloniferouse, Clueless, etc ...... ramble etc. r a m b l e , , , , , . . . . . _ _ _ _ _
