Past Photos of the Week

Every week we highlight another great submission from our annual photo contest

Early one morning, we found this baby owl. We thought it was injured, but it was just a fledgling who had gotten stuck! Big wing span on this little one and it was a thrill to return it to its family! —Kimberly Mayo, Seagrove, Randolph EMC
My friend planted many milkweed plants for monarch caterpillars to continue their cycle of life. Her beautiful monarchs found my butterfly bush and enjoyed sipping nectar on a glorious Carolina day. —Sara Williard, Winston Salem, EnergyUnited
I took this golden-hour photo from the Beaufort waterfront as the sun was setting over Carrot Island. Loved the late afternoon glow of the grazing horse and grass with the passing ship. —Douglas West, Washington, Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative
Seashells from Holden Beach. —Aaren Evans, Shallotte, Brunswick Electric

New fawns added to our herd. —Bill Belian, Murphy, Blue Ridge Mountain EMC
A pair of bald eagles frequents the trees near our waterfront house. They’re very talkative and active, flying back and forth across the river. One appeared to get scolded for landing on the same branch. —Thomas Snyder, Washington, Tideland EMC
A nest of hungry mockingbird babies lives in our flower bush in the front yard. —Caitlyn Lamere, Elon, Piedmont EMC

My grandchildren put our 2-year-old Cavapoo in this doll car. They said she needed to go on a trip to the beach to see all of her doggie friends. —Jayme Trainor, Waxhaw
Elk River Falls beneath the Milky Way. When we arrived the sky was cloudy, but my weather app said the clouds would clear at 10:00. They didn't clear until after 11:00, but the result was worth the wait. —Ed Nelson, Mint Hill, Union Power Cooperative
