Several weeks ago I entered my photo “Discovery” into the National Wildlife Federation Magazine’s first online photo competition. The photo was taken on a trail in the woods near our house. My kids were running up and down the path picking up and showing each other all the neat insects, worms and other bugs they were finding. I was ahead of them on the path and stopped to watch what they were doing. I loved the way the light was coming through the trees and hitting their blonde hair. It was perfect when they both leaned in to see a very interesting little creature they had found, and the light illuminated their hair as well as their hands and what they were holding (although we will never know what it was exactly!). They had made a golden, glowing discovery.
Over 1700 photos were entered into this “Nature in my Neighborhood” competition, and my “Discovery” was chosen as one of 6 finalists. The public can now vote to determine the winner of the NWF Magazine’s first themed photo contest.
