I thought this contest had some of the most spectacular entries. Congrats to all who won and all who entered. The top two took my breath away. And so did California Peggy's flower, as I was laughing about Johnny Noshoes' joking
It's so much fun to participate, and thanks for your votes.

Thank you for all the votes, I'm honored to have won the contest. My photo was taken on a cell phone so just proof that you don't need expensive gear to get a good shot.

It's always fun to enter these contests and an honor to be one of the top choices.

Congrats to mnhtnbb for that spectacular (cell phone!!!!!!) shot. Amazing.

Now, those of you who don't have a "good camera", well, no excuses! Join the photography group and enjoy!
