Next month’s competition theme is St. Mary’s County. Maybe I should have kept the photo for next month, but I have some others I can use.

More Winning Photos at SMCCC
We had a fairly difficult new photo judge last week for April’s St. Mary’s County Camera Club competition. At the last minute, he tossed out one of my favorite dog photos, but kept my Eastern Screech Owl for Advanced Digital First prize and my photo of an Old Boat at St. Mary’s College of Maryland for third prize. I liked the reflection of the autumn trees in the boat photo and the big eyes of the owl, the way its’ ears waved in the wind in front of the bokeh(BOH KAY or BOH KA) background (out of focus blur that sometimes looks like circles). The 8 or 9 inch owl kept closing his eyes from the wind making it challenging to photograph.
