!! Caption Contest !!

The contest is finished and it was a tie.
Although one of my own entries got the most points I certainly couldn't call myself the winner and give myself the prize.

I got numerous votes in for the various entries in the caption contest. After receiving a lot more votes to try break a tie, I finally called it a draw as they all kept coming in, equally for both.

Caption #19, as well as some of the other very creative entries, was submitted by Shane McGroarty of Charlottesville, Virginia, and a good friend from Skydive Orange. (The best drop zone in the world). www.skydiveorange.com. And a warm congratulations to both Shane and his fiancée, Carrie, for having just become engaged. You go buddy.

Caption #36, as well as many other, very creative "Gary Larson-ish" entries, was submitted by Greg Brumbach, of Fredericksburg, Virginia and a good friend from the Ni River Community Church. www.NiRiver.org

They will both receive any print of their choice, or a print of the birds with their caption.

Thanks for playing. And thanks for all the wonderful and creative entries from everyone that played.

Below is the complete list of the accumulated potential captions.
