Reminder for “O” stories voting

The Alphabet Challenge “O” Stories are off and running, each hoping to capture the heart — and votes — of readers.

If you are one such reader, and if you’ve not already done so — please read the stories and then cast a vote for your favorite of the three. Links to the stories and the poll for voting for “Alphabet Challenge O-Stories” are HERE.<<<Link

Here are a few photos for you . . . remember yesterday’s frog? Well, it underwent a transformation courtesy of Topaz Studio 2 . . .

Not sure if it’s an improvement on the original . . . but who doesn’t like frogs with blood-red feet?

So, this is a poor man’s attempt at Magic Eye pictures. Only, easier, so that I don’t piss off people who can’t defocus.

A monarch by any other name . . . is an abstract representation. OK, maybe not so abstract.

Hey, remember the Black Swallowtail butterfly? Here’s another treatment of it . . .

I thought this turned out pretty good.

The new Gallery for the reminder photos is HERE<<<Link. The photos are only slightly larger (30-50%) but the details are even better there than here.

I’m not linking other posts right now because, you know, if you have the time to look at other posts, you also have the time to read the stories. And if you’ve already read the stories and voted, take a few minutes to forward them to friends, family, and strangers. The writers will appreciate it.

Oh, OK . . . if you’ve already read and voted, HERE<<link is a link to a post from last year. Consider it a reward.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
