In case you haven’t seen or heard, the Audubon Society has published winners of their annual photography contest. From top, I have pasted and copied here photos of a painted bunting by Zachary Webster, Edinburg, TX (youth award, which TR would’ve loved); black skimmers by Tim Timmis, Port Bolivia, TX; prothonotary warblers by Donald Wuori, Harleyville, SC; sandhill cranes by Jason Savage, Helena MT; and a great egret by Melissa Groo, Port Richey, FL. Details about cameras and lenses used by the photographers, and 100 more shots may be seen at http://www.audubon.org/features/photoawards. And while you’re at the website, consider joining Audubon. It’s a wonderful way to be a part of preserving our birds for future generations.
