5. I'd like to ask the photographer of the alligator photo

that was also nominated, how the heck they snapped that photo. Telephoto lens?

Congratulations to all those who enter & the winners and those who keep making these threads.

I love that little duckie! To the photographer - how did you get it so perfectly in focus? Also, what kind of duck is that?

9. My favorite thing about "Fall"...

is how the duck itself seems to be made out of different-colored autumn leaves stuck together. Just a lovely picture!

Zoos and aquariums are great places for shots, aren't they? And shots can be so serendipitous! It's there and then it's not!
Just like a balloon floating away in the sky!

What a fun contest, Blue_In_AK!

16. That Mandarin Duckie wins the prize!

I'm so glad that Curt came in first with it. Mandarins are the cousins to our Wood Ducks and they just might be the most beautiful water fowl, ever. Tree ducks.

Congrats to all the winners and kudos to every single entry in this contest!

Again, great hosting job, Blue, at this time of year when it's hard to catch the attention of so many busy folk! You got a real good vote tally overall, considering.

27. Yes, roughly.

Check in to the photo group for the next announcement. We usually try to announce in GD and the Lounge, too. There is also a seasonal contest in May, August, November, and February.
