2012 Photo of the Year: Lola Girl


I greatly appreciate all those who followed my Photo of the Week series in 2012. Your ‘likes’ and star ratings helped select the 12 monthly finalists from which determined the No. 1 Readers’ Choice worthy of the 2012 Photo of the Year award.

Lola Girl

Lola Girl of 16/52 Whatever Lola wants … takes No. 1 honors with 33 ‘likes’ and 3 five-star ratings. She won April Photo of the Month honors paws down.

34/52 Orlando Moth


This beauty with the black blotches and iridescent blue spots is a Giant Leopard Moth, also referred to as Eyed Tiger Moth. I found him outside the Publix grocery near the Thousand Trails Orlando Nature Preserve Campground and RV Resort. I captured him and took him back to our vacation cabin so I could take these photos.

Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.

Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.
