Water is one of our most precious natural resources. Water covers 71% of the Earth’s surface and is essential for many forms of life. We use water for drinking, bathing, and playing, among other things. Lots of other creatures use water for playing, such as whales which breach out of the water, as shown in the spectacular photo above by Steve Simon of a whale breaching in Frederick Sound in Alaska.

Photobird Photo Contest Winners for July

August 3, 2009

“The Three Armadillos”

Thank you to everyone who entered the Photobird Photo Contest for July 2009! The theme for July was “Three” and a lot of great photos were entered into the contest. We had a lot of photos of children and birds, some fireworks (of course, for July!), turtles, oranges, chairs, arches, celebrities, sailboats, and an Amish caravan going to town.

Congratulations to Steve Creek, winner of the Photobird Award with the photo “The Three Armadillos“, shown above. I wrote about the photo in early July and I mentioned how it’s rare to see a photo of one armadillo because they’re just not something people take photos of, and yet Steve has a great photo of three of them together, which is even more rare. Click the photo above to see a larger version.

Congratulations to Seshadri Moitra, winner of the People’s Choice Award with the photo “the happy moment“. The photo appears to show a small family of three cows, with the mother simultaneously feeding her calf and touching another cow with her mouth. Perhaps it’s a sign of affection, and she’s managing to keep everyone in the group happy.

Steve and Seshadri will each receive the following prizes:

Congratulations again to both winners!

“One” was the theme for May. “Two” was the theme for June. And “Three” was the theme for July. Instead of “Four” for August, let’s shift gears, hop in a boat, and head out on the water while summer is still here! “Water” is the theme for the Photobird Photo Contest for August 2009. The Photobird Photo Contest is free to enter, so be sure to get your entry in and have your family and friends vote on their favorite photos before month’s end.
