Congratulations to you both. :yay-smiley-1:

The way that vote went it would have been very cruel for there to have been a loser. 

Beautiful finds.:)

We do in a way--our members enter some lovely and drool-worthy specimens each month. Without sounding too much like the "everybody gets a trophy" fad that has recently been watering down competitions for our younger generation, I enjoy seeing all of the entries each month as a gallery of the diverse finds that our members are discovering each month. :i_am_so_happy:

 

I always say that all who enter are winners but only one gets the digital award for the month--in this case it was easy to make an exception to that rule to split this month's award between two distinctly different finds that both deserve some extra recognition. Looks like this year's FOTY competition will contain a baker's dozen of entries to choose from making that choice just a bit more difficult to make. ;)

 

 

Cheers.

Thanks everyone and congrats to @Birdmanas well. Very cool fish. Although, I think my capybara would eat it for breakfast!!
