10 Favorite Photos From 2008...















Here are ten of my favorite photos I took during 2008. They are in no particular order but if I had to pick one, over all of them, it would have to be the hoverfly on the depford pink. If I had to pick my favorite photo experience from last year it would have to be when the otter popped up out of the ice about ten feet behind me. It was the first time I had seen an otter in the wild in Maine, all I did was turn around and snap away. A few months later I took the picture of the three curious whitetails a couple of hundred feet from the spot where I saw the otter.

All fabulous photos John!
I could enlarge the first two, after that, something froze up and no go. Enjoyed them anyway though.
Have a wonderful 2009 with photos you cannot even imagine yet!

10 wonderful photos for certain! I love the otter....I missed the original post, but went back and found all the photos. What a wonderful experience! I also love the katydid(?) on the blackeyed susan :-) I look forward to lots more "favorites" in the coming year! Happy New Year!

All these are beautiful... I don't know how you narrowed to 10... but out of those 10, I have to agree with ... the hoverfly on pink is the winner!

You do have a beautiful collection of photos here. I love the water droplet and the purple asters with single yellow daisy.

I love the retrospective. Thanks.

I saw the weather for ME today: the low in Maine was 1. I'll take a few more degrees before I return (and enough snow for some xc skiing, too!). Happy New Year!

My fave was the Hoverfly too John. All great shots though.
You make me want to venture into close-up photography again :-)

All are amazing. The clarity is really breathtaking. Shots like that otter...I think sometimes those are shots just for you. Like God is winking at you saying, this one's for you.
