Congratulations to Joe Gliozzo from the USA, who wins our May 2017 Photo of the Month event. Joe receives our $100 prize with this fantastic action shot of a Cedar Waxwing taken in Newport, New Hampshire in the USA.
Joe commented on the picture: "While gathered near a local airport in Newport, New Hampshire USA with many other photographers hoping to get a glance at a Great Gray Owl that had been spotted recently here, I took advantage of the waiting time by observing and photographing some Cedar Waxwings that were happy eating and singing close by. As I noticed that they were enjoying these local berries, I had to focus on one bird at a time rather than the groups that were formed. Singling out one gave me this opportunity and just as he flipped it I ran a few shots off. Later in the day the Great Gray Owl finally made his appearance and the day had become a total success."[/vision_content_box] [vision_notification style="success" font_size="20px"]Joe wins our $100 prize.
