It's been a while since I've posted. (not sure why there's white around my text.) My bird blog has suffered in its ranking, as a result. It couldn't be helped, though. I had to have corneal transplants in both eyes in 2013. As part of getting back into my photography, I've entered a photo competition and I need your help. The prizes are awarded based on the most votes received by the public. Please vote once a day through June 13th.
Please share this post with your FB friends and ask them to vote, too. My 5 images are all on pages 1-3, under "Newest" tab. Kathleen B is under each one, so they are easy to find. The links to the individual photos are below, if it will be easier for you to find my images.To see what images are ahead of mine in votes, go to "Most Popular". If you think any of my images are worthy of being pushed up in the ranks, please do what you can to help them get there. Feel free to vote for other worthy images you like, as well. There are some great images in the running.
