Photo Contest Entries

I went a little crazy entering the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center Photo Contest this year. A new category for photos taken at the center was added to the contest this year. The first three photos below are the ones I entered in this new category. I entered the last three photos in the botanical category. (You can click on the photos to see larger images.)

------Cicada Nymph Exoskeleton-----------------Horesmint----------------------Snake in the Dalea----------

---------Pink Evening Primrose----------------Blue-eyed Grass----------------------Bluebonnets--------------

Unless lightning strikes, I don't expect to top the charts on the public voting, however it would still be very useful to me for developing future photographic art images to know which of these photos people like the best, so if you have the time please vote for your favorite(s). (I have linked the name below each photo to the page to vote on that image.) You may vote once per day for whatever photo you like through May 6, 2013. If you really like an image but would prefer not to vote, please leave me a comment about the one(s) you like. The categories are judged privately, independent of the public voting.


  1. Great photos! I especially love the cicada picture. I tried to vote. Hope it went through. Brenda

  2. Beautiful photos! You have a great eye for the way you've captured the natural beauty of each flower. I voted!! Best of luck!

  3. Thanks to both of you for your input and votes.

  4. Thanks to everyone that voted. Voting is now closed. My bluebonnet and horsemint photos got the most votes. I do already have one bluebonnet photographic art print already but I may have to work with this one too, as well as developing a horsemint one.
