5 great photos from Tampa Bay Times readers: Vote for the one you like best

In our latest reader photo poll, in addition to great sunset and fog photos, we have a hawk grabbing a tasty snake, a snail checking out a tasty leaf and a heron hunting for a tasty fish. Please cast your vote below to help decide which of these five will wear the title of Reader Photo of the Month.

Each of these photos was published on the front page of the BayLink section of the newspaper during November.

Voting ends Friday, December 30, at 8:30 a.m. (You'll find this month's photos directly underneath the poll.)
