Many thanks to everybody who competed, great quality!

My shortlist here.

 

Voting ends at midnight on February 5th.

Midnight = Alamy time = the time set on the poll form. No idea which time that is. My system time? Greenwich Mean? Probably GMT.

So far a close race indeed!

Somehow only poor Orest's Winter Aconite is still lagging.

Still a very close race where just a couple of votes can make all the difference.

Poll closes on Tuesday 05/02/19 at 23:59.

Wow, thank you Wim! I have to be honest, I didn’t think my photo stood a chance against so many great ones. I love participating in this informal contest every month but I am honored just to make the short list, if I do.  And Wim, thanks for the list of previous challenge themes, very helpful!

 

I will think about subject, tonight, for this month’s challenge and post it tomorrow.

With another cute baby animal. Plus a cute little boy. Huge bonus for the goat's smile of course!

Yes yes, including this one, you had 4 wins ;-)

 

-Thank you, but undeserved.

Actually I'm close to innumerate so I do have to keep records of lots of things. Also I don't like doing stuff twice. Which usually hits me when I do something for the third or fourth time ;-)
