And the winner is...
Each judge voted for their top 3 images, which received 3 (1st), 2 (2nd) or 1 (3rd) points. This time there were only 6 entries to vote for. When the final total was calculated, the top three were ranked as follows:
Here are a couple of comments the judges made:
Dwarven Dwarfs (March) by Paul Bodnar - "Beautiful animals, nice light and good composition. Hatchlings of a species we do not see enough of. " Kent Vliet
The Specs on the Spectacled Caiman (November) by Jeff Bowers - "Nice to see an image of a caiman for a change. What a striking animal! Also good that it is a wild animal." Colin Stevenson
Thanks again to everyone who sent photographs during 2004, whether they made the Pic of the Month or not. This section of the website has always been popular, but merely a reflection of how popular crocodilians are. In our 10th Anniversary Year I hope we see more spectacular examples of why these animals fascinate us so much. Again, the picture voted the best by the end of 2005 will win a prize... and something a little special I hope this time.
Our first Pic of the Month for 2004 will appear here in early February, although I hope to squeeze in another caption contest if I can find a suitable photograph!
Would you like to enter your best photograph as a potential Pic of the Month? Send it to me and I'll include the best here each month. Each year I run a competition where the best photograph each year is awarded an Ilfochrome print, though in 2005 it's our 10th Anniversary so expect something a little different. The only criteria for submitting a photograph is this: it must capture the attention.
