Each week's DuPage County Neighbor section includes at least one entry in our Photo Finish contest. Our photo staff picks some of its favorite submissions to share each week and then one overall monthly winner.

This is one of those weeks where there doesn't seem to be any real theme to our entries.

Brendan Durkin of Roselle, for example, took his picture of a heron that spends its days at Turner Pond in Roselle. "I was lucky enough to have camera in hand as a local gentleman who was fishing threw the bird a snack," he says.

Vivian Prapuolenis of Wheaton, meanwhile, snapped her image of a hawk-nosed moth.

"The first time I saw one was in France," she says. "This summer as I was pulling into my garage I spied him flitting around the hanging flower planter between the two garage doors. They fly just like a hummingbird!"

(You can check out her picture on Page 4.)

Just when we thought Mother Nature would be this week's theme, Larry Pearlman of Naperville threw us a curveball with his entry that he calls "Red." It's an abstract view of a fuel tank and the cap of the container that he took around Calgary, Alberta.

We're always looking for cool photos to share with our readers.

If you'd like to try your hand at submitting a photo of your own for consideration, email it in .jpg format with at least 300 dpi resolution to ssanders@dailyherald.com.

Include your name, address and phone number, plus a description of where you took the photo and the occasion.

The monthly winner will receive a $50 gift certificate, good at PJ's Camera, Pickwick Place Plaza, 662 Roosevelt Road, Glen Ellyn.
