I am currently a member of the South Florida Camera Club (SFCC). The club includes monthly guest speakers, classes, field trips and photo competitions. I am proud to say that for the month of September, I came in 3rd place for our photo competition. :) The theme was Wild Animals. Here is a small part about it on the club's website.

"September’s Photographic Competition Winners
September’s photographic competition is the closest we’ve had so far in South Florida Camera Club, with first, second and third place being separated by only one point between each other. And the lucky first place winner for September is Linda St. Hilaire with her stunning photograph entitled “Cooling off” which she took at the Palm Beach Zoo At Dreher Park. Coming in a very close second is Leonardo Glusman with his photograph entitled “Jurassic Presence”. Leonardo took this photo on the southwest corner of Arthur Godfrey Road and Chase Avenue on Miami Beach. In third place we have Shannon DiBenedetto with her photograph entitled “Owl Baby” which she took at the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter, Florida."
And here is my "Owl Baby". I call him Owl Baby, since the instructor at Busch Wildlife said he was fairly young, and still acted like a baby, making a certain cry that only the baby owls make. He was such a sweetie.
