Photo Competition #12 - Scarecrows & Bird Scarers
« on: June 04, 2009, 11:11 »
Scarecrows and Bird Scarers - there's some amazing scarecrows to be found and weird and wonderful contraptions, dazzling displays of CDs So get snapping! Don't forget to put a little description with your photo. Perhaps where you saw it, what makes it special to you?

There's a prize! Either a copy of one of my books or if you've got them all (bless you!) a copy of Virginia Shirt's The Right Way to Keep Chickens

This competition will run until 26th July - with voting open to members for a week after.

The simple rules:

  • You can enter one photograph into the competition which should be no more than 640 pixels wide.
  • It can be anything you want that scares birds!
  • It should be accompanied by a short title and some description.  
  • The competition is open to all "Full Members".
  • At the closing date we will add a poll for members to vote on and the most popular photo will be the winner.
  • The winner will receive a prize as listed above and the winning photo may be placed in a permanent photo gallery along with the best runners up.
  • Closing Date for Entries: Sunday 26th July 2009 when voting will be allowed by all members until Monday 2nd August

Full rules can be found Here

Posted this elswhere on the site of my bird scarer, but seemed quite apt.

"Decor's lousy, but the food's fresh"



Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

If my son wasn't in his best clothes it would be very difficult to tell them apart! This was taken at the Eden Project.

Didnt know about this post. finished our scarecrow today and thought i would search and look at other peoples before adding his, I searched and came up with this post.

The children have named him Mr. Tom

He has scared fellow plot holders to death but the birds seem to love him  :lol:  :mellow:

He's brilliant Beetroot queen. I would keep an eye on him though as you may find his clothes going walkabout as they look in good condition.  :D

I've shown our ponies before (Shetlands) but why is there such emphasis placed on what the 'shower' is wearing than the pony itself.  The rules for this are as bad as showing an onion in a show! :)
