    I know February is a short month but boy did it pass by quickly. This was despite the days in my part of the world getting longer as the month progressed. More light and drier weather gave me more opportunities to go out and shoot some pictures. I hope the month was kind to you too and that you have managed to capture a favourite image to share in the February 2013 thread.

    You know the script. Choose your single favourite picture that you shot during February 2013 and post it below. If you have any thoughts or reflections about your image that you want to share, then please do. If you want your image to stand on its own two feet, then that's fine too. But please join in.

    Easy choice for me, as I have only one in February :) I did finally process images from holidays in last September, but they do not count here. So without further ado:

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Probably the only time I'd ever use a dog photo for any sort of "best of" anything - I have a couple of othe photos that are probably better photographs, but everyone in my family loves this one so much, I have to go with it. Seems to get at the very essence of this old lady. And I suspect it'll be one of our enduring memories of her over the years.

    I've not been anywhere nor done anything much since November, so I think I'd submit this shot of a paperwasp, shot in my yard with the k-5 and 35mm Ltd Macro...

    Cold and dark month here in Denmark, didn't get outside to shoot much. Very happy with this indoors shot though.

    Pretty much the only non-social shot I did in february. Tried to preserve the subtle atmosphere, instead of going for high contrast as I usually do.

    my gear was in flux in February (as has been my life). Not many shots to sort through and all of them failures.
