Opening emails is not usually exciting. But as each message loaded and revealed photos of baby animals — each one more adorable than the last — my heart soared. I could already tell that the Museum’s Northwoods Animal Babies Photo Contest had been a success.
I compiled the photos in a single folder and sent it off to James Netz, a professional photographer with a gallery in Hayward, who has been sponsoring photo contests at the museum off and on for many years. James also gets the unenviable job of picking just three winners from around a hundred wonderful entries.
