    Apologies for the very long wait. RL got in the way.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Spring is here, bringing the honking of geese outside my window. So I dedicate this contest to the birds.


    Usual rules apply, with the following exception: Please, no animated entries. I really have trouble processing a pageful of repetitive, constantly flickering images.

    No popular media, please (ie. movies, TV, cartoons, comics). Images from the news and nature documentaries are okay. Art is okay if it's not from a cartoon or comic.

    Enter as often as you wish. I'll leave it open for a week.

    this is the think mmmm thing --- I asked google photos to show me all my bird images I have uploaded --- I have uploaded lots of art images and views of outdoor museums and yeah the bronx zoo I took the best of these hundreds of bird images the first is a deep dream generated art thing of one of my works of art as the seed google then deep dreamed the image.. a couple times

    and finally a thanksgiving turkey yeah from ages ago when I was still friends with this husband and wife who now decided to get a divorce and it was really bad- but the good times were had back in the day,.. I would photo these cooked turkeys then eat them-

    there was another bird I photoed --- a ostrich at the zoo --- same zoo trip where I filmed the bears arguing and stuff but I am not including it as a giraffe was there with the ostrich so that image was not used--- also a deep dream work that was not really bird like was cut..

    I don't know "rubber ducky your the one..,"

    and this edit was the duck grouping from the bronx that is three ducks-- (duck theme). this was exported to the wrong file location so I saved it again on the computer

    As long as it's not from a movie, TV drama, cartoon, or comic, it's okay.
