2016 Audubon Photography Awards

More than 1,700 photographers entered the seventh annual Audubon Photography Awards competition, submitting images in several categories, including Amateur, Professional, Fine Art, and Youth. Nearly 7,000 images depicting birdlife from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and six Canadian provinces, were judged and the winners were recently announced. The National Audubon Society was kind enough to share some of this year’s winners and runners-up with us below. To view even more great bird photography, you can also see the top 100 entries at  the Audubon website.
