I was blown away by the amount of talent in this week's contest. I just need to take a second and say thanks to my co-host, Kim. If it wasn't for her there wouldn't have been any contests for the last month or more. She stepped right in and set up all the posts for me. I just sent her my picks. A lot of time goes in to getting these posts ready each week and I just wasn't feeling up to it. Kim eagerly offered to help me out till I was feeling more myself. I'm officially in the second trimester (woot woot!) so thankfully I'm starting to feel a little better. Please take a second and pop on over to Kim's blog and tell her thank you for all her hard work.

Now on to this week's winners. You are going to love these!

Look at the detail that she captured.  I know these guys are skiddish, so bravo.  Very crisp and bright, too. {Kim}

 I love the simplicity and composition. Your eye goes straight to the intended subject. Love the softness too. {Misty}

 The sun flare, the backlight glow on the field, it is all just so lovely! {Kim}
