trophy May 2010 Photo of the Month (POTM) winner!!!!

First place goes to Birdmandea for the cute opposum photo.

Bayouchic's image of the catfish and snake really caught my eye. It and Havalotta's frog and dragonfly were a "had to be there moment".

Kildale's hoary marmots remind me of home near Glacier Park .... where I am headed to as soon as I post this!!!!

Mine too! I loved him. I KNEW he was a winner! Then again the snake eating a fish was such an AWESOME sight to witness too.
Must have been hard picking a winner with so many GREAT photos!

Congratulations Birdmandea on the first place! I am soooo glad that I was not the one that had to judge the pictures, that would have been a really difficult job!
Congrats to Bayouchic and Havalotta and Kildale as well, all were excellent photos.
Havalotta's frog and damselfly was a once in a lifetime shot!

Congratulations, Birdmandea! I LOVE the opossum photo and I too think they are very cute critters! There were so many excellent photos this month. I can't wait to see what June brings!

Congrats birdmandea! Or maybe we should start calling you possum-mandea! Honestly, that cute little possum photo you took is sooooo charming, Hallmark would buy it for greeting cards!

Congrats to the other winners as well. All great photos!
