Congratulations to Steve Shelasky, a FeederWatcher from Longmeadow, MA, our winner for the twelfth week of the BirdSpotter Photo Contest sponsored by Bob’s Red Mill! The theme for the week was “birds and water”– Steve was lucky enough to capture this male Yellow Warbler taking a bath.
Steve explains how he got the shot:
I was lucky enough to be standing opposite this puddle, at some distance, when this beautiful little Yellow Warbler flew in, checked out the amenities, and began his bath. I was able to get off several shots, this being the best one(thank you Canon 7D, 8fr/sec).
It’s such a wonderfully cheery photo – we hope it brightens your day as much as it brightened ours!
The thriteenth week of our BirdSpotter Photo Contest will be open for submissions and voting this Wednesday, February 6th! This week’s theme is “the unexpected,” so pull out your photos of anything weird or wacky or your surprise moments. Only one photo can be submitted per person but you can vote for as many photos as you like. This week’s contest starts today Wednesday, February 6th and runs through Sunday, February 10th.
