  1. Like: 45, 43, 38, 34, 29, 25, 26,20, 36, 19, 14, 7,3,6,5,3, 1
    we could buy a couple, though for a calendar, it would be good to have some autumn and winter shots….or is that outside your time-frame?


  2. I LOVE the fact that none of my choices were among my wife’s choices! So mine are 42, 39, 29, 30, 28, 20. But I really wanted to vote for the cute little chipmunk poised in a tree in one of those round holes half way up the trunk of the tree. He’s a cutie i would like to look at all month. All good, all wonderful, and all for a good cause, thanks, Andy.


  3. My recommended selections: 3,6,20,23,26,28,29,35,40,53,56,60
    With sixty marvelous pictures to choose from this was a difficult task. I tried to select a variety of subjects, photos that would translate well to a calendar, unusual & interesting subjects, and photos that represent Estabrook to me.
    Thanks for all your efforts. Two (maybe three) calendars please!


  4. My selections: 3,6,20,23,26,28,29,35,40,53,56,60
    It was difficult to choose just twelve photos. They are all wonderful.To narrow it down I tried to select photos of a variety of subjects, photos that would look good in a calendar, photos you would enjoy looking at over and over again, photos that to me represent Estabrook Park, and I chose one photo that I just thought was cool (hint: it is the grasshopper). Thanks for sharing your adventures with us. Please set aside two (possibly three) calendars for me.


  5. Hard to Choose! #1, 5, 11, 19, 34, 36, 42, 51, 53, 56, 57, 59 Not on this list, but sure would like to see the cute beaver! Forwarding daily to 10 family members. Thanks Would purchase one calendar.
