NWF 2010 Photo Contest Additions

Sometimes I'm absolutely amazed at the workings of the mind. As you know from my previous post, I had submitted 25 photos to the 2010 National Wildlife Federation's photo contest thinking I was done. Anyhow, while I was in San Francisco for the 4th of July weekend I woke up on Saturday morning crying out "The Harpy"! The one photo I wanted to enter was the photo of the Harpy eagle that I took at the San Diego Zoo a month or so ago. I had it in my NWF2010 collection in Lightroom, but somehow I had missed uploading it. One $20 entry fee gets you 25 photo submissions, and I had already done that so I knew I just had to rush back and pay another entry fee and at least submit the Harpy eagle photo, even if I didn't bother to enter any others.

So when I got home on Monday night, the first thing I did was to fire up my computer, sign into my account and attempt to enter another set, only to find there was a problem with the website. It was the evening of Monday 5th, Tuesday 6th was the deadline! On Tuesday they finally fixed their issue and I was able to pay another fee and enter another 25 photos that I'd gotten ready on Monday night. As a result, I have my beloved Harpy eagle photo submitted, along with 49 other photos!

Here's a video compilation of the now 50 photos that I have submitted.

So glad you persisted and entered your harpy! That's an arresting expression.

All the best,

I can't recall if the zebra butts where in original, but I'm glad you got them in, I really like that picture; I believe I dated both of those asses! muhaha
Seriously, great shot of the Harpy Owl, and of course, all of them! Love the bright little duck too!!

Hi Lesli. No, the zebra butts weren't in the original, although they too were meant to have been. I like that perspective too.
