This year, for the first time I am aware off, the Kapiti Coast Photographic Society entered the annual Trenna Packer Nature competition.

The results are now out, with the first three places being taken by the Nature Photographic Society, the Pukekohe Franklin Camera Club, and the Greymouth Photography Club. Check out their sets.

We were aware that our entry probably had too many birds, and needed to be more diverse. But I think it was a good effort for a first try, with some excellent images (see below).  Thanks to all who submitted images to be considered, and to Carol for helping with the selection. Onwards and upwards for another KCPS entry next year!
