New Life in Spring


Ah, spring has finally arrived. How do I know? Well, it’s warmer outside, for one, and the birds are chirping, and it stays light outside longer and longer each day. Baseball season has started up, and so have my springtime allergies. Must be all that pollen in the air!

That’s what I really like about Tom Vogt’s “New Life”, a recent entry in our Photobird Photo Contest for April: Shot with a Nikon D200 with a 20-200mm zoom lens, Tom has captured an incredible amount of detail in this macro shot of a flower. You can practically make out each individual speck of pollen grouped around the stamen. And the highlights on those waxy petals are both supple and tactile; you feel like you can reach out and touch it. Which I would if I didn’t have this pollen allergy; oh, and if I knew it wasn’t just a photograph.

There’s just a little over one week left now for you to enter our Photobird Photo Contest for this month. The contest is free to enter. The theme for April, if you haven’t already guessed, is “Spring”. If you want a chance to win, we need to get your best photo of Spring before the end of the month. You can’t win if you don’t enter, so enter today!

The contest is free to enter and each month we choose one Photobird Award Winner for the best overall entry of the month, while your votes will determine the winner of the People’s Choice Award, the most popular entry of the month.

Each of our winners will receive the following fabulous prizes:

Photobird account with 500MB storage

Oh, and be sure to vote for your favorite entries and ask your friends and family to vote for their favorite entries as well. These votes will determine the People’s Choice Award.
