2012 Reader Photos of the Year

HONORABLE MENTION: NORTHWEST FLORA AND FAUNA

Photographer: David Jang, Sammamish

Photo taken: March 11, 2012, Marymoor Park, Redmond

Photographer's description: "My wife and I were birding when we came across a flock of cedar waxwings. We found it comical watching the birds gorge themselves. Taken with a Canon 60D with 1/2,500 shutter, 500mm."

Judge's comment: "What makes this interesting is the moment captured: mid-swallow. The neutral palette allows the bright red berries and highlights of yellow on the bird to really pop."
