PhotoQuest - 5 Favorite Photos

I have been a passionate amateur photographer for several years and via my vox community and flickr, there are occasionally some super fun photoquests and photo duels that I like to participate in so I thought I would share my entry into the most recent!

The task was to submit your 5 favorite photos that you had taken ... not quite as easy as it sounds but here are my submissions - What do you think?

  "Beachcombing" - This photo is of my niece looking for seashells on the beach in Boca Raton, Florida.  It was actually a runner up for the Fodor's Florida photo contest for Palm Beach County.  I like the simplicity and timeless feel - I remember doing the same thing when I was her age.

"LIBRA" - orchids are one of my passions - photographing them, not growing them because I have a black thumb and it would be unfair to commit orchicide.  So I admire them and photograph them.  When I lived in Florida, I was a few minutes from the American Orchid Society headquarters and I spent many hours in the gardens and hothouse.  I am in awe of the perfection of all varieties of orchids.  this is a slipper orchid - they are like ballet slippers for fairies!

Following close in my passion for my family and orchids are dragonflies.  I am a dragonfly stalker and I have photo documented over 26 kinds.  My photo community calls me the dragonfly whisperer - lol and me?  well, I just love them.  They are amazing to observe!  This is a Halloween Pennant taking a sip on a grass stalk in South Florida.

"The Eyes Have It" - burrowing owls reside in South Florida and I had a chance to sit in complete delight outside of one of their burrows as they popped in and out. 

"Utah Does Good Moon" - Moon rise over the Wasatch Peaks - my favorite!

Here is a mosaic of a few more favorites and please check out my flickr if you would like to see more - What are your favorite pictures that you have taken?  Pop a link into comments and share!
