X is for Xplore Photo Contest Winners

Xplore is the name of the weekly outdoor magazine supplement to the Fort Collins Coloradoan. Each month Xplore holds a photo contest for local amateur and professional photographers to submit their outdoor images for judging by popular vote.

The photos for March and previous months are online. The March winner's photo of a bald eagle in the raptor cages at the Environmental Learning Center is worth seeing.

April photos submitted so far are posted online as well. I love the one with the foxy mama and her kits.

Margot, you're most welcome. I get a reminder in my printed Xplore copy when the winner is announced, and I love seeing what folks have photographed. Makes me want to get a new camera and go Xploring.

Hi Angela, thanks for stopping by.

eXcellent X letter blog I too like the bald eagle.

Hey, Kerrie. I went out to the Environmental Learning Center to see the raptors a couple of years ago. It never occurred to me someone could get a picture that beautiful.

Thanks, Yvonne. The eagle is gorgeous, isn't he? Or she...not sure I could tell the difference.

Nice to see something different for X. Tough letter!

Hi Lisa -- X is definitely tricky, so I was pretty lucky to have this one to fall back on.
