POLLINATOR PORTRAITS PHOTO CONTEST

THE TOP 2 PHOTOGRAPHERS!
Congratulations to the two grand prize winners that both won brand new cameras! It was a tough decision for the 2010 Pollinator Portrait High School Photo Contest.

King William, VA
"I took these photos on a cold October morning.  The bees were all over the butterfly bushes in our front yard and they were not moving, since the sun had not heated the earth up sufficiently enough.  I then took 57 pictures of them using my new Micro lens so I could get up close and personal with the bees...I loved how my lens could capture every characteristic of the bee!"

Nikon Coolpix P90
Amelia, VA
"The photo I took today (September 11, 2010) with a camera I borrowed from my Mom.  This bumbler is feasting on the pollen from a Siam Queen Basil plant in Amelia, VA.  If you look closely you can see the pollen on his fuzzy little legs."
