    Shall we offer up our best 5 of 2005?

    Or something like this?

    Or is it to early?

    Or does this sound dorky?

    (It's the vicodin doing it to me :)

    I think that it's a great idea Jim. Sort of like the hummer contest that we had a month or so ago that drew hundreds of views and dozens of responses. Only problem is, where can I find find 5 good shots. :rolleyes:
     
  3. Could be the final cafe challenge for the year? Best shot?

    Gale,

    Uhhhhh, I seem to remember one or two. Let's see, there were the Snowy's from the Alligator Farm, some pretty good RWBB shots, and several BBWD shots from Viera, and at least a few dozen others that come to mind. :rolleyes:

    Cummon girl, show us what you got. :wink:

  7. Well I've got my 5 favorites but you've all seen them lately, I think the majority of my favorites have been from the past few weeks...

    It's a great idea, I would really like to see this thread take off :)

    Ok I'll start this.. A favorite

    50042750.
     
  9. OK, I'll bite...

    This is my very favorite wildlife pic of 2005. The pic itself is fairly poor quality in that it was late in the afternoon and rather backlit. I didn't use fill flash because I didn't want to startle my subjects. We were watching this nest for over a month. When we pulled up and saw that she had goslings, there were three. After we were there for a few minutes, I got this shot and noticed that there were now four. So, the wet one hatched while we were there. What I didn't notice for several months (literally) was that the back end of that wet gosling is still in the egg. So, even when considering the poor light and lack of focus on mom's face (the kids are focused...) this is my very favorite "birdie" pic of 2005.

    Thanks for starting this thread!

    Holy Moly!

    I figured you folks would think that I was nuts for suggesting this. Now I need to get off my butt and figure out what to post?

    And for the smugmug users if you append /date to your smugmug url like:

    www.martind.smugmug.com/date

    Then you can pick a date range and see what was done in the last year.
