Earlier this year, I submitted, for the first time, to a photography contest dedicated to the revered 19th century photographer Julia Margaret Cameron. When I came back from a trip, I was more than delighted (and honored) to see my name in more than one category of the winners' list.
The image below is one of them. If you remember, I've posted it before. Clicking on the image will bring you to it.
To have a chance out of 4,580 images from 57 countries, I consider myself lucky. As mom of nature and wildlife photographer Jason Tiesman tells him, "When you see a cardinal, good things are to come". I do remember seeing such a birdie in la Amazonia last year. I guess I owe her a debt of gratitude. Muchas gracias, red-capped cardinal!
