I won!!!

I'm so excited to be one of the winners of the photo contest by Arizona Game and Fish and Arizona Highways Nature Photography Competition.

My Least Bittern photo will be the month of April in the Nature Photography Calendar for 2017.

There were over 180 photographers that entered and over 1900 photos submitted.  I know I submitted around 30 myself :-)

I am so honored to be among such great photographers and to also have one of my cottontail photos as an honorable mention.
