There have been some great photos submitted for this contest so far. However, the first thread states that there is to be one entry per person. If everyone would please stick to that, it will make judging much easier for those of us who will be doing it. Thanks everyone, and keep those awesome photos coming!

I don't take enough time to photograph in the summer, but this is my favorite from last year. I posted this before but improved the processing slightly for the contest.

Good luck to all!



By the way, the photo was taken September 6, 2008, and I just started eating these bananas this past week.

Bill, I think the cold and snow has made you even more weird than my buddy Pete! LOL

But, now that you mention it, I see what you're talking about and I'm afraid I'm going to be dreaming about these tonight!

Thanks,

Harvey

P.S. I thought about bumping up the saturation more but my original looks better on my monitor than the web version so I'll leave it.

Cute photo, it is surprising that they do not eat your banana leaves.

Cuy are remarkably well-behaved rodents. Here, at least, if you ask your Cuy nicely not to eat your lettuces, he'll ususally stop. Then again, Cuy here know that if they don't stop, you're likely to barbecue them....

You're absolutely right, I think me and maybe Stumpy would agree chicken fried is better.

Andrei, no offense meant. I love my pets and am sure you feel the same.

Surely, no offence intended! However, Ms.Kitty, I will attest to the tastiness of a good BBQ Cuy. I'll take you some pics from the Cuy Festival next September, if I happen to be in the Mocha area.

Also, you're from Tennessee! You mean to tell me you've never eaten rabbit? Cuy is very similar in flavour and texture.

Talking Re: Photo Contest - January '09

Yes, I agree, my rodents very gluttonous, they eat almost all vegetation. When I left them at a window, to get warm on the sun they have started to taste my bananas which grew there. I am assured that if it to allow it to eat, they will eat it completely. Here such they bright. And so we feed with their tomatoes and cucumbers, even a banana peel and very much we love them. I heard that in any country they are used in food, and by them very much even tasty but so the life is arranged. The best regards!
