Ooops! I Came In Too Fast
This image of a juvenile Roseate Spoonbill appeared in the Third Tier of the NANPA (North American Nature Photography Association) publication "EXPRESSIONS 2012". Each year NANPA selects the Top 250 images from over 2000 submissions and presents them in three tiers-the Top Ten, Tier Two containing 90 images and Tier Three containing 150 images. This was my very first entry into a photography competition, which makes this personally very special.
This image was also selected in the TOP 100 photos for 2012 by the Audubon Society
