Reader photos: You showed us “Lowcountry wildlife,” now let’s see “Faces“

From Ann Tiller of Mount Pleasant: Taken at Shem Creek.

In honor of the 34th annual Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, we asked you for Lowcountry wildlife photos and you responded with many great pictures. There were birds in flight, alligators, anoles, fierce looking owls, slithering snakes, a few deer and a bobcat enjoying a meal.

There were nearly 60 images submitted and it was hard to pick just one, but in the end, we agreed that the photo of two birds at Shem Creek by Ann Tiller of Mount Pleasant was the one we liked the best. It took some quick action to capture this fleeting moment — the egret with a fish in its beak and an obviously attentive gull flying nearby.

Thank you to all who submitted entries.

Send us your best shot of whatever this theme conjures up in your mind. It could be a new photo or an old one. Submit only one entry per photographer please.

- Send just one (1) photograph to by noon on Thursday, Feb. 18. Include your name, town and where the photo was taken. If you send us multiple photos we will select one randomly.

- 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.

- The top pick each week will be featured in the Sunday Arts & Culture section and selected picks will appear on The Post and Courier Facebook page.
