This year has been rewarding from a bird & wildlife photography competitions standpoint! First of all, having two images qualified for the famous BBC Wildlife Photographer Of The Year final rounds was quite a blessing. Then the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) International Photographic Competition brought a silver medal, while the FPP (Florida Professional Photographers) print competition brought 1st place and 2nd place in the Wild Animals category.
See below the images recognized in the 2015 BBC Wildlife Photographer Of The Year competition:
This image was created during an overcast day. Proper exposure made for a beautiful high key photograph with a stunning stance. Note that we often see at least one Reddish Egret during the Spoonbill photography tour.
This image was created along the Hudson Bay, right during the purple fireweed blooming two week window during the heart of Summer.
