Congratulations to our winners! Wonderful photos!! They draw us into their story, and let us touch a little bit of nature's wonders.

Thank you Dave for all the work that you do in our photo of the month contest!

The owls especially were great! After seeing all the excellent entries this month, I certainly did not expect any of mine to place; a very humble thanks.
p.s. - I would have voted for Benj1's leaf...

Way to go ~Sage~
The fleming elk is fantastic!
A barn holds so much history...
Snow flees are often overlooked. Thank you
I like the slumbering leaf in its hammock too. Very peacefull.

Oh my. I would not have been able to select a winner for this month. The five pics posted were too good.

Congratulations to each and every one of you. Beautiful pics.

Oh, wow! My burrowing owls won! That's cool because they are not easily seen by most people and they posed so nicely for you all!

Congrats to Kildale for the excellent steamy bull and suunto for the winter scene, and Bulu and Benj too!
