by Annette Heist

Thanks to everyone who submitted a photo to our winter nature photo contest. We’re so impressed! (View the whole album here.)

Below are the winning photographs–the ones that got the most “likes” on our Facebook page. (There was a three way tie for 5th place, hence the seven winners. And if you were lucky enough to have more than one photo posted, we only let you win once.) We’ve also included a couple staff picks. Winners will get a Science Friday pocket protector. Congratulations–and thanks for warming up our winter!
