Voting Booth - April 2012 - Perched Bird

We had 64 entries this month many of them very good making it a very difficult choice to narrow them down to 30 for inclusion in the voting booth.

Please vote for your favourite entry - theme - Perched Bird.

Entries can be viewed as -

1. Thumbnails

2. Slideshow

This is so hard, they are all so good. I have got it down to three favourites, but how to decide?!

I'm finding it really difficult to choose just one photograph this month - there really are some stunners. I'm always guilty when voting of going for a favourite bird rather than taking into account the technical side of the photographs but I expect there are lots of voters who'll do that too.

Very tough choice this time! Narrowed it down to three that, in addition to sharp detail, great color, nice poses etc., also had exquisite composition. Husband and I agreed on the three and I let him choose which we voted for.

Announcing the winners of the April 2012 photo theme challenge

A very popular theme this month and I dare say due to the high quality of entries voting was very close the first couple of weeks until one image began to pull away from the field.

73 members cast their vote.

First place with 11/73 votes - kim with Dartford Warbler


Second place - with 7/73 votes - Marise with Whitethroat


Joint third with 5/73 votes -

Dave Williams with What big eyes you've got !

and

jtwood with Long-eared Owl


Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who took the time to view the entries and cast their vote.
