Theoretically, this is part two of the Bird Photography Contest, but I decided to improve a little bit and expand to allow art as well as photos. Isn't that delightful? Get out your cameras, your pencils, your brushes, or whatever your tool of choice is, and get crackin'!

1. All work must be yours, and any references used must be credited.
2. All images must be uploaded on Elftown.
3. All participants are allowed three (3) entries.

Art and photography will be voted on in separate polls to determine a winner. A host's favourite will also be picked from both categories. Each winner will receive a badge.

The deadline of this contest is August 20th, 2009.

Poll winners
Art: 'Scouting' by [Bente]
Photography: 'Eagle' by [Tynuka-Rhytishy]

Host's favourites
Art: 'Barn Owl' by [*Blade*]
Photography: 'Birdling takes his first bike ride' by [Sheepy]

2009-04-18 [Viking]: Woohooo!
Time for a trip to Muscatatuck.

2009-04-18 [Linderel]: \o/

2009-04-18 [Chimes]: Already have like... two photos I can use for this once I get them on this laptop.

2009-04-20 [Linderel]: Jitteeeeer you forgot the category :P *fixors*

2009-04-20 [Jitter]: amagad sorry xD

2009-04-20 [Linderel]: S'okay, it happens :P

2009-04-20 [Linderel]: [Iske]: Are you going for 'destructive', perchance?

2009-04-20 [Rainbow Dragonflies]: 3> this is my comment so I don't have to click the "watch" button.
By being lazy I have inadvertently made things harder on myself. Again. XD

2009-04-20 [Linderel]: Hahaha, gotta love laziness <3

2009-04-23 [Iske]: yup sorry????? I'll change it Did not see it.. Thx

2009-04-23 [moira hawthorne]: I love the ducks! wow those photos are huge tho

2009-04-23 [Iske]: I know , I took them with my moms camera.; and that is a very good one lol

2009-05-26 [Lothuriel]: I am trying so hard to capture some King Fischers but, I keep scaring them away...same with the other birds.

2009-05-26 [moira hawthorne]: there is a dove nestin in out neighbour's back yard quite close to our fence... but brown grey bird... brown gray nest... upwards shot... makes for a poor photo

2009-05-26 [Lothuriel]: I know what you mean :P

2009-05-26 [Viking]: Birds are not normally the most co-operative of photo subjects. Unless, of course, you're talking about the rare, never before photographed, fuzzy feathered Pipsquacker bird.

2009-05-26 [Lothuriel]: Hahaha!! I didn't even have to click the link to know what you were talking about! Great stuff!!!

2009-05-26 [Viking]: I'm not at all a fan of that version of Tom and Jerry, except for the Pipsquacker episode =)

2009-05-26 [Lothuriel]: I love Tom and Jerry but, I do have to agree those episodes were not my most favorite.

2009-05-26 [Viking]: There was just something wrong with them being allies instead of adversaries.

2009-05-26 [Lothuriel]: Not near as fun.

2009-06-20 [Linderel]: *spanks Jitter*

2009-06-20 [Jitter]: Oh yeah.


2009-06-21 [Aeolynn]: oops! sry, didnt put the hr tag in >.o

2009-06-21 [Aeolynn]: Just in case, those are eggs beneath her, shes really not that fat lol

2009-06-25 [Bente]: Speaking of birds and cartoons, I just have to add:

Poor bird photographer! XD

2009-06-25 [Linderel]: Will you be participating? :)

2009-06-25 [Bente]: I'll see :) I'd love to, I just have to find a bird who's willing to stand still long enough to let me take a picture of it.

2009-06-25 [Linderel]: Great!
I'm slightly disappointed no one has as of yet submitted anything to the art category. <_<

2009-06-25 [Chimes]: I'ma pondering it :P I suck at drawing birds though :P

2009-06-25 [Aeolynn]: there u go Linderel :3

2009-06-26 [Linderel]: Whoot!

2009-07-02 [moira hawthorne]: yah i really dont draw birds... cant really think of any birds Ive drawn... ever!

2009-07-14 [XxTsomexX]: Ugh!! Lol there are my 3 entires.

2009-07-14 [Aeolynn]: very cute Tsome, love the two tiels lol

2009-07-14 [XxTsomexX]: I actually have 3 tiels, 4 parakeets :) There was the baby cardinal we tried to save, but he died :(

2009-07-19 [Aeolynn]: Wow, a jay! You guys own a Jay Sheepy?

2009-07-19 [Sheepy]: Nope! He fell out of his nest (unharmed, just couldn't fly) and my driveway was his home base for about 3 days, with mama flying down to feed him. He was more curious about me than afraid -- I gave in to a silly impulse to get him to step up, which he of course didn't do, but he also didn't hop away. He just looked at me like I was some kinda weirdo.

2009-07-19 [Aeolynn]: Very cute, I've always had a fantasy to help a bird from a fallen nest and keeping them. But I'll settle with parrots till then lol

2009-07-20 [Viking]: That's a really awesome photo, [Sheepy]. And on a Cannondale! =)

2009-07-20 [XxTsomexX]: Lucky -_- the pic of the cardinal I put up flew into the window of my dad's work. He brought it home for me to take care of. Despite my hard work to try and keep him alive, he died the next day :(

2009-07-20 [Sheepy]: Thanks! And yes, I <3 my bike, it's my first "real" one (the bird's, too).

2009-07-28 [Linderel]: Trin <3 Will I be given an artsy Trin-bird as well? :3

2009-07-28 [Triola]: Maaaaaybe... although I need to finish up my portfolio before I do anything else artsy >.<

2009-07-31 [moira hawthorne]: [*Blade*] awesome eagle!

2009-07-31 [*Blade*]: Aww, thanks Moira, i couldnt decide whether to put this or my owl in..i dont want to put both in, but i decided this..glad you like it =)

2009-07-31 [moira hawthorne]: you are allowed to put up 3

2009-08-01 [*Blade*]: Oh i know, i just dont normally like putting multiple entries into competitons, i prefer just doing one..but i might make an exception here lol

2009-08-01 [moira hawthorne]: ahhhh the owl is good... but I like the eagle better
(owl looks a bit unfinished)

2009-08-01 [Sheepy]: ooooooooh my gosh, I want to squish that tiny owl, [maryanne]!!!

2009-08-01 [maryanne]: Heehee. Yeah, he was pretty adorable. And grumpy. He'd give people the evil eye.

2009-08-01 [*Blade*]: Thanks..and yeah, i do like the eagle..what would you say is unfinished on the always up for tips to help me improve on my paintings =)

2009-08-01 [moira hawthorne]: it just seem to lack the spark of life that the eagle does... maybe it that the eyes are a flat black.. and it just seems to lack depth

2009-08-01 [*Blade*]: Yeah, ive always thought that actually..i forgot to add the detail in the eyes..and yeah, i see..thanks! And the best thing is, with acrylics and oils you can always go over them to make them better..ill give it a go =)

2009-08-01 [XxTsomexX]: i love that painting of the eagle!! it is gorgeous.

2009-08-01 [*Blade*]: Aww, thanks [XxTsomexX] Glad you like it =)

2009-08-01 [moira hawthorne]: yah I love acrylics! is it painted in acrylics or oils?

2009-08-01 [XxTsomexX]: my grandmother had an obsession with them XD lol we have eagle stuff all over the place. I'm planning to get her van painted black with red white and blue flames on it with an eagle image on the back window in tribute to her.

2009-08-01 [*Blade*]: Awww, so its in the family then, you inherited it xD Haha, yeah..well it isnt the worst thing to have around..theyre beautiful animals. Awww, thats really nice, are you going to do it or are you getting someone to paint it for you?

2009-08-01 [XxTsomexX]: i'm gonna try to do it :) lol key word try

2009-08-01 [*Blade*]: lol Im sure you'll do a great job..aslong as you use paint that isnt acrylics or oils..they dont go onto vans very well lol

2009-08-01 [XxTsomexX]: oh I know... when I was 7 I tried... and I cried when the rain washed it all off...

2009-08-01 [*Blade*]: Haha, Awww, well, atleast it taught you to use something else..and now you wont make that mistake again lol You have to put some pics up when you've finished tho, i want to see your final result =)
