Pentax Photo Contest #2 - Nature
Posted By: noelcmn, 05-07-2020, 10:58 AM

This weeks Theme is "nature", it's a good time to pickup the camera and snap a few photos. For this week's contest simply look for anything that says Nature- Insects, flowers, trees, sunrise/sunsets, even human beings. In short, anything that is not human/man-made Be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme and keep the human/man-made stuff to a minimum.

The weekly Pentax Photo Contest is similar to the Weekly Challenge with a few exceptions. Participants get to vote on their favorite photo. To vote, one simply posts their choice for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Places are determined by the number of overall points each photo receives. You do not need to enter to vote, anyone can vote. Every week, the winner chooses a new theme, hosts the challenge for the following week and tallies the points to determine the next winner/host.

Points will be:
• 3 for 1st place
• 2 for 2nd place
• 1 for 3rd place.

Post until Tuesday at 12 noon GMT, May 12, 2020
Voting starts Tuesday at 12 noon GMT, May 12, 2020

Cute little guy; nice image. NC also has harmless little green snakes about the same color. I've only seen a couple, and one was dead.
