We had a sneaking suspicion that when we announced plans to start a photo club and requested your reader photos, the response would overwhelm the office with prized pictures. Trying to find our favorites among them was more difficult than we imagined.

Those selected include a boy standing next to a tall sunflower from Corry, Pa., resident Sharlynn Buckley, a butterfly on a lilac bush from Sue Papenthien of Granbury, TX, giant pumpkins from Paul Coppick of Cleveland, TN, and a thriving garden from Linda Campbell of Sturgis, MI. Enjoy!
