By Jenion Tyson: Photo taken in Park Circle on June 16, 2013. I grew sunflowers last year, and after saving the seeds, I fed a lot of them to my chickens, sitting on my back steps. Obviously they didn’t eat all the seeds, because I had three of them come up in the yard right there. I let them grow - I mowed around them - and they started to open and attracted a lot of native bees. It was also about a week after I bought a really good camera - I’m sure that helped.

Wow, what a great collection of photos this week.

We asked for your art of nature photos and you delivered, showing us the beauty in everything from a spider, to a black swamp, to a snake fat on chicken eggs.

It was extremely difficult to choose a winner but ultimately the editors chose Jenion Tyson’s photo to appear in the People section of Saturday’s Post and Courier. Pick up a copy to read what the editors liked most about it.

We’re hopeful we’ll get as many as inspired responses to this week’s topic: Bridges of the Lowcountry.

The rules:

- Send one (1) photograph to by noon on Tuesday, Oct. 29. Include your name, town and where the photo was taken.

- If you want your photo to be eligible to run in the newspaper, it must be at least 1,500 pixels. Our editors will select which photo will appear each week. We reserve the right to not publish any photo for any reason.

- We will allow photographs with reasonable watermarks to run in the gallery but for the winning photo that runs in the newspaper we must have a photo that does not have a watermark. If you want to send us one with the watermark (to run online) and one without (to possibly run in the newspaper) please feel free.
