Birds & Blooms – Backyard Photo Contest
I was cleaning up my office when I came across a page out of the September 2015 Birds & Blooms issue about a photo contest that I had intended to enter but had completely forgotten about. There are three categories in the competition – Best Flower, Best Bird, & Best Butterfly. I regularly take photos of all three of those items, so I decided that I’d go ahead and purchase one print to enter into each of the categories.
The flower photograph that I’m going to enter is a photo of some gladioli that I planted this year. I love that they’re tri-colored, because all of my other gladioli are only one color. I also think that our “rustic” fence makes a nice photo-background.
