Winners

1st Place with 50 points:

From rossdesigns: "Two Squirrels I took this photo at my mother’s house in Kenwood, Sonoma County, in the spring before she passed. She loved looking out of her large picture window to watch the squirrel family that lived in a tree across from her bedroom. Two parents and three babies would delight us by chasing each other through the branches, hiding in the hole, and peeping out. I set up my tripod at her window and waited, determined to get a shot of them. This delightful picture of two of the brothers rewarded my patience. What’s even more interesting is that if you magnify the photo several times, you will see the reflection of my mother’s house in the squirrel’s eyes. Laurel Ross "
