At last we are able to announce the winners of the Wildflower Center’s fourth annual wildflower photography contest! The contest that we sponsor in partnership with Texas Highways magazine stopped accepting entries on May 6. Nearly 1,300 photographs were entered this April in five categories by amateur photography enthusiasts -– and some professionals to boot! First, the public decided on Carrol Fibich’s compelling monarch butterfly photograph that earned more than one-sixth of 23,000 votes cast!
Judges sat down in June to pick our favorites. Congratulations to all of our winners and thank you to everyone who entered.
