Love the color! We've never seen so many cardinals all at once. We couldn't resist the orginality of this photo.

2012 –2013 Winner: "Winter Woodpecker"
Seeing the bird through frost-covered branches added interest to this picture. We enjoyed the composition, pattern, and colors.

We love this unusual shot with the off-white of the chicken against the snow—plus, the striking contrast of the beak and comb.
