Looks like we have a tie!

Congrats to MicroNinja and Tumamoc, with 6 votes each, as the winners of the 1st CactiGuide/CoronaCactus Photo Contest!

Coming in a very close 2nd was PeterB with 5 votes, congrats!

Rounding out the top 3, with 3 votes, was Antonio_P, congrats!


Well, since i did not think of a rule in the event of a tie...I feel it only fair to award both winners the same 35 pot prizes. That means both of you get the same prize, 35 pots each.


The winning photos
1st Place tie

MicroNinja: one of my favourite photos from my trip to Peru. Trichocereus cuzcoensis me thinks.

tumamoc: Carnegiea gigantea mutant

2nd Place
PeterB: Pachycereus pringlei, me at the base, near catavina, Baja California.

3rd Place
Antonio_P: Euphorbia sp. Lisbon Botanical Garden (Estufa Fria)

Hey, that's good of you to award 35 pots to both in the first place tie. Congrats to the winners, but my Pachycereus pringlei will outlive you all! :-)
