Over the past couple of months I've been tracking my most popular photo, a close-up of a hawk, as it was chased down in the "most viewed" group by a perv-magnet picture of two girls kissing one another. It's been obvious to me for a while that the race to be first to 1000 views was going to be close, and now that it's done I'm just preserving their respective daily stats here for posterity.
In the weeks running up to the big day, the differences were: 950-876 (12 July), 970-918 (19 July), 977-950 (26 July). In the last 28 days, 73 views for the fearsome avian glare, compared to 183 for the canoodling females; didn't look good for the poor birdie, eh? But a wee spike of activity in the final weekend made all the difference, and it squeaked over the finish line just in time. Of course, the lesbian kiss will quickly and inevitably become my most viewed shot anyway, but that close-up of the hawk will always be the first to 1000.
