It’s the last round of our Winter Nature Photo Contest—time for you to pick a winner from 10 finalists. Here’s how they were chosen:
 
From more than 270 submissions, our judge, professional photographer John Weller, picked 10 top photos. He says it wasn’t an easy job. “There were many very wonderful photographs, and I would have liked to present 30 images, not 10!” he writes. “Thank you all for inspiring me with your work. Keep shooting!!” 
 
Meanwhile, you and other members of the public spent two weeks voting for a top contender. Turns out, you have a good eye. The finalist you chose—Julie Fernandez’s “Frolicking Foxes”—was also selected by our judge.
 
It’s now up to you all to make one of these 10 photos a winner. Scroll through the images below or in the slideshow above (you can see them bigger if you expand the slideshow window), and use the poll at the end of this post to cast your ballot. You have until 11:59 a.m. E.T. on March 9th to vote. You may only vote once this round.
 
We’ll announce the winner on air Friday, March 14th. A big thanks to everyone who entered! (To see all photo contest submissions, click here.)
 
Correction: Because the audience’s favorite photo from this voting round was also selected by our judge, John Weller, 10 photos will advance to the final round voting, not 11, as stated in an earlier post.
