Just a few days are left for you to enter your photograph into this year’s National Wildlife  Photo Contest!

So if you are looking for a place to capture spectacular images of nature, try your local wetland. Some people might think wetlands are desolate swamps. In fact, they are beautiful wonderlands, critical wildlife habitat that offers vibrant bounties for wildlife watchers, particularly birders and photographers.

I hope my Wildlife Promise blog "Photograph Time in a Wetland Wonderland" and these entries into the Photo Contest in this slideshow will inspire you to enter your own photo.

See the amazing photos and
enter your own in the 2013 
National Wildlife Photo Contest!
