Digiscoper of the Year!

A Winning Shot!

"Jersey Digiscoper" Kevin Bolton notified me this morning via email that I'm one of ten winners of Swarovski's 2009 Digiscoper of the Year Contest! The 1st place prize went to Steve Berliner for his fabulous shot of a Pileated Woodpecker sipping from a pool of water with a nice reflection. Of the images I submitted, I thought my Eastern Towhee shot was the best, but I'm also very fond of the Sedge Wren (above) the judges selected.

Check out all the contest winners at the Digiscoper of the Year website!
