Yeah, it's our 50th EOL Images contest! Let's do something special for this one. Instead of posting an image from your own photostream, pick your favorite photo from another group member. In order to be eligible, the photo has to be properly tagged, licensed, and posted to the EOL group.

Please post below your one (1) favorite image and its number in the posting sequence, along with the name of the photographer and a brief explanation of why you like the image so much. It's ok for different people to select images from the same photographer, but don't select an image that has already been nominated by somebody else. Submissions will be open through next Monday. If you have questions or comments post them to this thread.

Let the big EOL image hunt begin!

#5 Secretary Bird (Sagittarius serpentarius) by dracobotanicus. I just love this guy's face, and the photo is perfectly crisp with great bokeh.

#9 Nelson's Pinyon Pinus nelsonii cone, by Carlos Velazco. An excellent quality, high resolution (3.5 megapixels) photo of the weirdest and genetically most unique pine in the world (and also rare and inaccessible).

That was fun! Maybe we should do this more often.

Submissions are now closed and Voting is OPEN! You may only vote once, and you may not vote for the photo you nominated! Of course, it's your favorite, but you kinda have already voted for it by nominating it. The photo with the most votes is the winner. When the voting week has closed, an administrator will change the thread status from VOTE to CLOSED. See Voting Instructions
