Favorite Photo of the Week Winners + Contest - Week 16

Sorry to get this post up so late but we lost power yesterday from around 3:30 in the afternoon all the way till about 1:00 this morning. We are having some of our hottest days right now so it was definitely a bad time to lose power. Several counties throughout SoCal and into AZ all lost power. They've never experienced a power outage this big before.  Thankfully it's back on though and all is good.

Just a reminder: Today is the last day to win/trade an ad spot on my blog. Read this post to find out how.

So now on with this week's winners and the new contest linky. Be sure to grab your button!


Terrific lighting and clarity and the fact that we get to see him moving in on his meal is extra spectacular!

I'm loving the soft lighting and peaceful colors of this photo. Makes me want to go lay in the field and drink in the peaceful silence.

I was pretty much in awe when I saw this photo. Apparently this was taken at a Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. Knowing that made this picture even more moving for me. So much emotion was captured.

I have seen a lot of sunburst pictures but this one really impressed me! Wish I could do that.

Um, wow. The shot of the spider is fantastic. The Holocaust memorial, stunning. But that winner...speechless. How did they get the entire bee in focus? I wonder if the used Helicon or something? I must know!!!
