I am proud to announce that my cardinal photo won the People's Choice Award in Botanica's photo contest this year. The cardinal and I thank everyone that voted. The photo was taken the morning after our record 16" snowfall last winter. Botanica had been transformed into a winter wonderland over night and I was the first visitor in the gardens that morning. I caught the cardinal in the Woodland Bird Garden taking a short break from dining at the feeders.
I encourage all of you in the Wichita area to visit Botanica and bring your camera, take some photos and enter them in next years contest.
