This month's challenge theme, chosen by Donna (dgknodle) is "Weeds and Wildflowers". Many plants not traditionally grown in cultivated gardens have their own unique beauty, so show us some of your images!

Participating in our monthly contests can help us to become better photographers. We can see and learn from all of the entries as our members showcase their best work each month.

These monthly contests are the preliminary rounds for the Best of Nikonians Photo Contest, where you have the opportunity to win attractive prizes and have your images highlighted in the Winners Galleries and published in the eZine.

The top images will be selected by the winner of the previous months challenge, and will be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo.

Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the theme, and creativity just to name a few.
The number of finalists is based on the number of entrants. We plan on 6 finalists each month but will adjust based on the level of participation.

The winning image will be added to the Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery for the Macro and Close-Up Forum.

We look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!
