Before I left for work today I got a phone call. I thought it was going to my sister since it was about the time she usually gets there so I thought maybe she was running late. It wasn't her though. It was a woman from the Nature Center at Three Rivers Park District calling to tell me I had won second place in the plants category for the ametuer photography contest! I had just been checking online to see if the winners were posted but didn't find anything and had sort of forgotten about it. The photographs were judged on the 28th and since I hadn't heard anything I was checking into it and decided I hadn't won since I hadn't heard anything. I was so excited! There were 80 entries. 3 categories and 3 winners for each category. I won a gift certificate for National Camera. Which is great since it's where I shop for my camera stuff!
