Our local newspaper puts out a weekly magazine called "The Times of Acadiana". They ran a photo contest and my image placed First in the Macro/Detail category. It was one of those shots that when you click the camera, you knew the shot worked. This guy was on a Zinna in my backyard. Looks like he might have had a hard life but he was beautiful with the sun shining straight through his wings... like he was glowing.
They published my picture and had a very nice write up about me. (blush) What an honor!
The image below made honorable mention. I took this to hang in my husband Mike's office. He is the Operation Manager for our local utility company. A sub station at sunset.
