I am very pleased to announce that my images, Red Fox Running in Snow (pictured below,) and Frosted Aspens II, have both been featured as “highly honored” in the wildlife and plant life categories of the Windland Smith Rice International Awards – a prestigious annual contest/exhibition run by the wonderful people over at Nature’s Best Photography. Red Fox Running in Snow has been selected for exhibition in the Washington D.C.’s Smithsonian Museum of Natural History later this year. My work has been featured in this exhibit once before, when I was awarded Youth Photographer of the Year in 2009. I must say that it is every bit as large of thrill for me this time around! I’m very excited. The exhibit will run for approximately six months, beginning on March 30th.
