Don't get discouraged. I'm in the same boat as you. I thought I entered a great photo but now I'm thinking damn, what did I do wrong. A part of me is hoping its just being over looked because it's in the second post and not the first, lol.
I made sure to look through both posts first. I didn't see anything that wasn't adorable. I kept going back and forth on whom I'd choose. It's a very tough competition. The picture I submitted was chosen from a couple hundred I'd taken this year. I don't feel mine's the best even though I'm horribly biased.

It's becoming clear that I should have entered one of my much more photogenic tortoises.
That's a tough crowd!
Yeah, I'm in the same boat. I just snapped any old picture just to have an entry. So I took a picture of a little Texas tortoise. A very plain-looking tortoise and doesn't stand a chance against some of the beauties entered. Cripes, I didn't even vote for my own picture! That shows how plain she looks.

Frankly, I don't think there's such a thing as a plain tortoise. They're all special in their own way.

You should've entered BO & SO.

It looks like it's a battle between #2 and #28 for the top prize. My meager hope is that my baby earns a month to himself this year.

Yvonne, I didn't vote for my photo either! Hahaha

I totally regret just sending in a standard photo. Especially because my particular entry is the only representative of his species...man! If it was a "good shot" it might have been a shoe in! Lol

I feel your pain. Mine is the only shot of its species too.

Last year I did the same thing. Tried to pic the best picture but knew it wouldn't get a month. It's always good to try then to not try though. No regrets when you try!

This year I thought I entered an awesome picture. Seems others have a differing view :p

But they're all great pictures and all torts and turtles are so cute. It's always a hard choice☺

I really didn't have any hope of being voted for. I just snapped a picture so I could have something new to enter. And this year we've had an awful lot of entries. I can't remember how many we've had in the past, but it seems like we have a very good participation this year.

I've got a running tally here at work of which pictures are in the top twelve. I keep refreshing to see if there are any more votes, more specifically any more for my little guy (or girl--still don't know for sure).

Me too My Sheldon hasn't gotten a month since 2013 and now he's tied for a spot. I'm hoping he can keep his spot. I'm really enjoying the battle between 2 and 28 though. It's like watching an election, lol.

But Still a long way to go!

I'm sure your boss is very happy you're doing such important work :)

Thanks to the person who pointed out several of these posts today to me.

There is a reason we do not say which member belongs to which photo. It's to give everybody's picture the chance to get a vote based on the picture, not who took it. (Also helps keep folks from campaigning for votes). Now while some of you are not saying "my photo is number 107" by giving clues you are actually telling us what picture is yours. Please stop.
