Among the wide variety of bugs inhabiting Colorado, the folks at Cheyenne Mountain State Park are collecting a very special specimen: shutterbugs.

The park is launching its third annual photo contest, which celebrates photos that capture the scenic beauty and wildlife of Colorado.

Amateur and professional photographers are invited to compete in two age groups: adult and youth, 14 and younger.

The contest seeks submissions in three categories: Landscape, Native Wildlife , Native Flowers, Insects and Birds as well as a youth category for kids under 14 years of age. There will be an adult winner chosen in each category and one  youth winner.  Photos must have been taken within the last 12 months.

The deadline to enter a photo is 5 p.m., May 11. Photo submissions must be dropped at the park visitor center or mailed to 410 JL Ranch Heights, Colorado Springs, Colo., 80926. The winning entries will be displayed in our visitor center May 16-31.
