I'm proud to say that one of my photos has reached the top ten finalists for the natural world in the Smithsonian magazine competition. Feel free to vote for it to be the winner if you like it :) or, of course, any of the other if you prefer. Some tough competition there so I'm very pleased


and congrats to Ethan Daniels with his lovely coconut shot!
