I was notified a few weeks ago that I came in first place in the bird category of the Wildlife in NC photo contest. I also placed third in the invertebrates category. I received a package in the mail today from them, so I wanted to give the viewers of my blog a sense of what you receive when win the contest. The winning photos from the magazine will be in the science museum in Raleigh, NC for the remainder of the year. I also received four copies of the magazine, a check and a printed copy of each of the winning photographs.
