With the 2020 contest over, I'll have to say I really enjoyed participating: entering photos, judging photos, seeing all the great winning pictures. We have some talented gardeners and photographers!
This was my first year and I did learn some things. I had some trouble deciding where to put my photos. For example, I didn't put my butterfly in "Wildlife and Plants" because to me, "wildlife" means "animals" i.e. birds, mammals, frogs... not insects. But I saw that is where most of the insects pictures went.
This category was so big (over 300 entries), I'd like to suggest splitting it into two:
1. Wildlife and Plants (Mammals, birds, frogs, reptiles, etc)
2. Insects and Plants (Insects, spiders, and similar small arthropods)
BTW: I like that you include the words "and Plants" for the category name. This is, after all, a gardening organization, and I like to see plants in the pictures with the critters!
Thank you for organizing the contest! Looking forward to next year!
