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."
