Wild Wisconsin


Well, this was sure difficult. When we announced our Wisconsin Wildlife Photo Contest back in June, we expected to get a lot of great entries. However, we were overwhelmed by the volume and variety of gorgeous photos we received, making this the most challenging (and also the most fun) photo contest we’ve ever judged. Ultimately, after considerable, somewhat passionate discussion, we settled on this photo of a turtle at Bark Bay Slough in Herbster, taken by Jeff Underhill, a member of Bayfield Electric Cooperative. Jeff won a Wisconsin Energy Cooperative News kitchen kit. Thanks to all the amazing photographers who shared their beautiful photos, a few of which we’re sharing below. You’re all winners!
