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

Our latest reader photo poll features some beautifully lit skies (both daytime and nighttime) and a spider and a bird just kinda hanging out (though not together). 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 February.

Voting ends Friday, March 31, at 8:30 a.m. (You'll find this month's photos directly underneath the poll.)
