Two Wyoming photographers featured in invasive species photo contest

(Sheridan, Wyo.) — Two Wyoming photographers had their work featured in a photo contest depicting invasive species from across the nation. Jackson Hole's Lesley Beckworth submitted photos of Mecinus janthiniformis and Dalmatian toadflax, and Andrew Litzel from Sheridan County submitted a panoramic shot called "Life on the Powder River - Leafy Spurge." TechLine Invasive Plant News , a digital publication featuring science-based information for invasive plant managers, held its first photo contest this year. Photos were published this fall. Judges scored photographs based on relevance to invasive plant management, composition, and general aesthetic appeal. Over 80 photographs of invasive plant species and management in action across the country — here are the submissions from Wyoming: [image: Inline image 3] *Life on the Powder River - Leafy Spurge.
