Lets try this and see if it could work.

This month will be very biased as I choose them, but the goal is that when you find a picture that someone has posted during the month that you feel should be nominated, post it here (with link to the thread or description of who’s photo on which thread). At the end of the month we can then evaluate the best three pics for the month. The photo is only those posted in that month and not any older photos

This month is chose 5 due to it just being me:

Best Photo of the month: Rusty Justy with Golden Breasted Bunting
The vibrant colours and good composition makes this a great pic:

Image

Runners up:

No. 2 Johann du Preez with Dwarf Bittern
Image

No. 3 Dinky Bird with Woodland Kingfisher.
Image

No 4. Hanus Bernard with Greater Kestrel
Image

No 5. Yolande Oelsen with Green Backed Heron
Image
