Each year the national Wild Ones organization (Nan and I belong to the Cincinnati chapter) sponsors a photo contest. Since the purpose of this organization is to promote native plants and natural landscapes, the contest recognizes winners in seven categories: Children, Flora, Pollinators, Photos by Kids, Non-residential Landscaping, Residential Landscaping, and Scenery. Three photos are awarded prizes in each category.
I admit it was Nan’s idea to send a couple of my photos in to see how they might fare … and two of them were chosen! My photo a common buckeye was awarded second place and my photo of a honey bee earned third place … both in the pollinator category.
You can see the photos below.
