Red Ribbon!

I am very pleased to report that I received the second place ribbon in the Pets category at the Putnam County Fair for my photo of Sasha with her cicada. I honestly didn’t expect to place in any of the categories that I entered because there were so many excellent photos, although, I did notice that the number of photos entered this year was considerably less compared to last year.

I was a bit disappointed to realize that only 5 out of the 6 photos that I had entered were up for judging. The photo of the emerging cicada was missing from the boards; and the thistle photo was placed in category 9 (Insects) instead of where I intended it to be, category 11 (Flowers, plants, trees). Ginger from the Cookeville Camera Club left a voicemail today telling me that they located the missing photo and “according to the judges it wouldn’t have made a difference in the placing.” Oh well, I’m not going to lose any sleep over it, lol.

The experience was well worth my time, so I’m not complaining. And I am very grateful to have placed in one category. Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to enter!

Here’s a few photos from my visit to the fair this past Saturday.

  1. Well done! I spotted that photo of yours on my travels through flickr a while back and it piqued my interest so much that I tracked down your blog and started following. Love your insect photos! 🙂
