Great Shots

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.

  1. These are truly amazing! I love looking at wildlife photography, since I’ve tried it a few times myself and not been too successful. A few months ago, my local library branch featured a talk by Brian Wood, who takes wonderful photos at Eagle Marsh. He said he goes there nearly every day, and often spends 2-3 hours waiting before something photo-worthy happens. Many days, he goes, waits, and nothing happens. I was impressed by the patience it must take to get these great shots.
