Best of 2019

2019best-33

I know we're halfway through the month of January already (YIKES....how did that happen?!), but I'm compiling my favorite images from 2019 for a book and thought I'd share them with you.

So, in no particular order of preference, I present you my best (in my opinion) photographs of 2019:

Okay...I said no particular order...maybe I lied.  This photo of a chestnut-eared aracari from Brazil is probably my very favorite.  I love how close we were, close enough to get the feather details and beautiful colors.

 

Now, in no particular order, the rest of my best...

I need some snow and wintry weather in my life!  I love the winter season, but so far we've had disappointingly very little of the white stuff.  Bring it on!

Although they were a distance off and this isn't an award-winning shot, this documents the very first time I've seen whooping cranes in the wild!  So it counts among my favorites, for sure.
