Well thank you Mrs. Donna P. and Lee...

Lee, you said "Marvelous Macro" and this made me think was this perhaps best suited for the "Flower" category or "Macro" category? Well, guess it's too late now and we shall see how far it will go. If it does not make finalist I will try the Macro category.

Gosh, thank you all so much.... You know, the competition is extremely tight for the month of May and I am honored to have even a finalist among my peers here at BP. I actually could not pick a favorite in my category since there was so many awesome photos and trust me, I DO NOT say that often....LOL..LOL...


KEN...... thanks and you sure raked up this month and I am sure we will see more than one placement for you. Never know it may be your time to shine.

OMG you all, this win is so amazing and words cannot even begin to describe the feeling I had when I learned of the news. I have been trying for a year just to get a finalist; my first finalist in March, second in April and now first place in May. Wow, when it rains it pours. I am excited to accomplish one of my many goals while learning and gaining personal growth towards being the best digital photographer I can be.
I am so humbled by the support you all consistently have for me and if it were not for the love and support of the Better Photo Community I would not be in the position I am in today.
Thanks so much to each and every one of you.

Thank you very much Mary Beth. It's a great honor to be in the winner's circle with you and all the other talented photographers. I was looking through all the past Grand Prize Winners and First Place and I see that these two spots are very hard to land even for the most talented here, so I do consider myself very fortunate to be in the position that I am and never take anything for granted because there are some wonderful photos throughout this site that are more deserving than mine but yet I captured top honors. This is why I am so honored and grateful to be in first place.

Again, thanks for commenting.
