February Monthly Photo Contest Candidates

The February candidates for Observation of the Month have been selected by Kyle Jones. Thanks to the plethora of amazing sightings by Vermont naturalists, there was no trouble at all finding enough candidates—the challenge was figuring out how to choose only four. Just like last month, if you are reading this, you are one of the judges. Look at the observations listed below and vote by adding a comment to this message with your selection. The observation with the most votes wins.

Vote for February! Voting closes in one week.

I'll go with the barred owl. It's pattern looks like a conifer cone edged in snow. Beautiful animal and great pic. The mating Boreus scorpionflies were great too, and were a great find.

I prefer the Barred Owl pic, wonderful context and setting.

Yeah, I am really tempted to vote for the sugar maples because, you know, plants, and becacuse it is so pretty, but i think from a biology nerd standpoint I need to vote for the mating bugs as well. (#1)
