32. Lantana grows as a perennial in the deep south.

I plant it as an annual in pots for my balcony here in North Carolina.

Amazing photographs to all who submitted. The hardest part of these final photography contest is selecting only one photo. I love viewing everyone's beautiful and unique perspectives.




If Mz Pip is reading this, I wanted to let you know that I voted for your photo until the end because I'm a sunset junkie and the colors in your photo blew me away.

18. Excellent photos folks

Although I was "forced" to only vote for one, I think they all should be tied for first place.

26. Truly fine art

Especially the winning hummingbird entry.
My favorite pix are the ones I look at and wonder; "how did you do that?".

K&R and thanx to all who entered. Makes my day.

But to the person who took the picture of the doggy swimming in the lake, I wanted you to win! There is nothing better than seeing a dog playing in the water, happy as can be. And that photo melted my heart!
