With 24 photos submitted by 12 talented photographers, there are a lot of feathers and foliage around this month, and this has been one of the hardest months to choose just three finalists! Without further adieu, I'm happy to congratulate...
- olmail - White-Crowned Sparrow
- cheryl624 - Wild Turkey
- ct_resident - Soaring Gull
Each of these photos showed off the outstanding beauty both of the bird and the foliage in stunning and dramatic ways, telling a story of the change of seasons in beautiful imagery. Now the hard part is up to you - see the finalist photos in the forum, then cast your vote in the poll below to help choose the winner! Voting will be open through the end of the month, and the winner will be announced in early November. Congratulations again to all our finalists, and many thanks to everyone who has joined in!
Voting for this contest is now closed. See which photo won!
