Winners - Weekly Challenge #490 Birds
Posted By: atupdate, 03-17-2020, 04:25 PM

I knew when I chose birds as my challenge topic that it would be a hard challenge to judge. I loved the variety of birds entered. And the winners are:

1st Place: DeKay. This one surprised me in a good way. I would never have thought to take a formal portrait of a chicken.

2nd Place: NickDB. Great color and sense of motion with the birds.

3rd Place: SpecialK. I can't count the number of times I tried to get a similar picture of our neighborhood heron. Well done.

HM: The love the birds and the bokah presented by the 4 honorable mentions: jacamar, photolady, Vaskebjorn, and erikro.

Great job by everyone and it is now up to DeKay to host the next challenge.
