***JUNE/ SPRING Seasonal Photo Contest: Preliminary Thread 2*** [View all]

It's time for another Photo Contest! This month is our Seasonal SPRING Contest. Photographers were asked to submit entries that said "Spring" to them. We have flowers, bugs, butterflies, trees, clouds, baby birds, and more...an abundance of Spring!

You know the drill. Please VOTE for the photo that best says "Spring" to you. Think also not just about the subject, but the technical caliber of the photo. Think about framing, focus, and whether the shot pulls you in or tells a story.

PLEASE VOTE in all three Preliminary threads.
You will find the other two threads here: Preliminary Thread 3 https://www.democraticunderground.com/100215520142
Preliminary Thread 1 https://www.democraticunderground.com/100215520141


Voting in the Preliminaries will run for 72 hours. FINALS will consist of the photos with the top 3 votes in each preliminary thread and the next highest across all three threads.

As always, please feel free to leave comments.
