Category: Enjoying the Environment

CATEGORY WINNER
Untitled
Richard Burkart, Battle Creek, MI

On this spring day my wife and I were enjoying the environment and beauty of Battle Creek River. I find it extremely interesting that this photo was taken within four blocks from the heart of Battle Creek, MI. Sometimes we can find true beauty and enjoy nature real close to home or in our own back yard. The reason I chose this scene was of the reflections of the trees and natural framing of the picture in this location.

"Untitled"
Julie Larsen Maher, Sleepy Hollow, NY

Bruce Foster, Wildlife Conservation Society's Collections Manager at Central Park Zoo, is working to save the critically endangered Wyoming toad, thought to be extinct in the wild. Through a successful breeding program in New York, there is now a small population of the toads found outside of Laramie, Wyoming, a result of a joint reintroduction program lead by the USFWS and supported by AZA Zoos.

Realm of the Deer
Alex Saberi, London, England

Taken early one autumn morning in Richmond park (London's biggest and best park). I had been stalking these guys every morning due to the rut and the mists. The sun was coming up behind them, backlighting the leaves and mists.
