From rainbows over the ocean to a dark-eyed junco with near-albino colouring, submissions to our 8th Annual Nature Photo Contest showcased an awesome variety of Mayne Island moments. Thank you to all who submitted entries, and to our panel of judges. We had 27 amateur photographers submit a total of 53 photographs, spread out among five categories: Landscape, Native Creatures, Native Plants, Ocean Beach Scene, and Youth Photographer. See below for a slideshow, in no particular order, of all of the winning photographs.
Our 2022 Nature Calendar features each of these winning photos. The calendar also includes tips on growing native plants, information about local animals and when to see them, and reminders for upcoming Conservancy initiatives. The calendars will be available for sale sometime in early November at the following Mayne Island businesses: Books on Mayne, Dragonfly Gallery, Tree Frog Gallery, and Home Hardware. Calendars will also be available for purchase online, through our website. Thank you to all the business owners for supporting this fundraiser.
