Honorable Mention in Audubon 2015 Photo Contest

One of my Black Skimmer photos from Bolivar Flats was selected as “honorable mention” in the 2015 Audubon Photo Contest.  They contacted me several weeks ago and mentioned that my photo had made the semi-finals and that they needed a copy of my RAW file and some info about the photo.  I’m thrilled as there were almost 9,000 entries.

  3. Very nice work. People make fun of my when I lay on the ground to get shots!

    • Thanks Dennis. Down low is the only way to go. I haven’t been made fun of yet but I’m usually the only one around. I’m sure that the birds laugh at me once in a while.

      • No problem – I have the ‘let them laugh’ attitude myself!
