About the May, 2023 Calflora Photo Contest

Add your observations with photos to enter Calflora's 9th annual May photo contest. When the photo was taken does not matter -- it just must be added to Calflora as an observation during the month of May.

Please see this Announcement of the 2023 Photo Contest

Here is how to contribute an observation with photos.

Here are the five photo contest categories.

How to vote for the photos you like:
1. Go to the Observation Search application. Search for all observations with photos added (indexed) during May, 2023.

2. By the end of the month there will be a lot of records. To make it easier to see all of them, here is the search divided into 5 day periods:

3. When you see a photo you like, click on the photo to go to the Observation Detail page. For instance, here is an Observation Detail page with a photo of Hesperoyucca whipplei by Randy Fry, "liked" by 6 Calflora users.

One observation may have multiple photos. There is a "Like" link under each photo on the left. Click the "Like" link for the photos you like. That's all there is to it. As a reminder, the link appears pink for the photos you have already liked.
(If you click it again, your "like" goes away.)
