    There were some great pictures there and some birds most of us will never see in person. Those birds in Costa Rica are stunning.

    I think that it should be an annual event although I also think to promote more photography that it should be limited to this years photos. would be easier for Jill to sort out the champs to!!!


    Have a wonderful day and feel free to check out more of my photography here,

    Brian that would be kinda of a good idea but with so many people not being real honest there would be no way to keep people honest.

    I agree Giddey….an annual event would be great.  It would encourage to take more pictures of birds.  A new hobby is good for the soul…….now this is speaking from someone who just bought themselves a new camera…..LOL  First I have to remember to take the cover off the lens.

     

    Yes Sharon, there were some beautiful birds.  Of course the exotic birds are hard to beat, but some of our local ones are stunning.

     

    Steve, did I miss your pictures on team B?  I know you have some really nice ones!

     

    Brian, I agree that it would be good to have the current year for an annual bird bowl.  This would encourage to go out and take new pictures.  Plus keep a dated account of each picture.  I for one never dated my pictures.  The downloading to my computer would date the entire day shoot, but when I transferred them to other files, the date would be the day I transferred.  So it was difficult for me to follow that rule.

     

    Anyways, I was glued to the screen during the entire time the bird bowl was on.  Loved every minute of it.

    Stella most of my pictures are fairly common birds that most everyone has pictures of so I waited till near the end and posted a couple of pictures that hadn’t been posted and also a couple I wasn’t sure if they had been posted or not so I put them in just in case. But I was watching the entire time.

    I know there was quite a bit of duplication. I carefully looked through all the photos, to make sure that “my” birds wouldn’t be duplicates…but I know not everyone did that. ;)

    I’ll also admit, my photos weren’t the best ones shared, either. Without a telephoto lens, I do the best I can. Flowers are easier for me to photograph; they don’t fly away! LOL

    Hopefully this will become an annual event, because it was very enjoyable! :D

    I reaalllllllly enjoyed the challenge yesterday! I want to go to Costa Rica now to take photos. That goes on my “bucket list ” with the monarch migration.  Now that I know how to download photos, I am ready for next year.  There maybe would  have been more participation if folks could be instructed (in more detail)  on how to get the photos on the site (prior to the contest day). …or did it miss helpful details on that.

    Michelle you contribution to the bird bowl was spectacular.  Each and everyones pictures were appreciated.  Lots of fun.

     

    You can count me in as the first person to ask for your help.  I just bought a Sony DSC HX300…Ok, it’s not a sophisticated camera, but for what I need, it’s good enough.  As it is I’m having problems getting to learn it.  The question I have is….where do I insert into the camera the date so that it appears every time I take a picture?  That was the problem with my photos last night.  I had to go back and check the file dates.  Of course they were not the right ones because I compiled several dates into one file.  I know I have a long way to go.  Thanks in advance.
