Beenphotographing Downy Woodpeckers nesting in a shady tree. A lttle boost in contrast on an underexposed shot and cleaning up the background and this is the result.

In spite of a lot of very strong entries this month my choices come down to this last page.

PDL's hummingbird in flicght is the most unique image here, to me at least. I would also give a second to DigitalGal for her humourous "bird on a bottle".

I am going with Tim (NonEntity!) for his shot with the asunset in the background. The profile of the parachute and pilot are very striking against that background.

I liked Intrepid Walker's entry when it was first posted, and still like it as my favorite since (to me) it best represents the silhouette art form. It conveys a mood that I cannot describe but can definitely feel. Ergo, my vote goes to Intrepid Walker!

Tim's (Non Entity's)image of thepara-sailor (sp?)defintely deserves an honorable mention! Nice job all!

A number of really equally strong entries this month - tough decision among 5 for me (Daz, Tim,Intrepid Walker, Rodney, and Driver3). I think DAZ's Seattle Hill is the most visually striking, but I will go with Driver3's solitary Egret - it evokes strong feeling of lonliness andisolation, and at the same time creates an aura ofpeace and serenity.

My first 1st place goes to IntrepidWalker, with DigitalGal and Driver3 close behind.

My vote goes to driver3 also - there's something about it thatappeals to me. There are a number of other pictures thatI love in this group, its a very diverse group and everyone should be proud of their entries (and yes, I think DigitalGal's bottle is wonderful, too).

Is Thursday, the 5th midnight EST too late to keep the voting open? Just figured maybe we should set a deadline to prevent confusion like last month.

I'll be back later to vote when I can look through the photos again. There are just too many I like.
