And if this morning is any indication for the rest of the year, I’d say: bring it on! I got an email from Nature’s Best telling me that my image ‘Red Crowned Cranes’ won a Highly Honored in the Birds (those who know me will appreciate the irony) category of the competition. It was shot last year on our White & Wild Japan photo tour. Only 110 images were selected from over 20,000 entries, so I’m honored to be part of the happy few again.
The winning images will be displayed in the annual exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. opening in Fall 2015.
