A couple days ago, we presented this year’s winners of the Bird Photographer of the Year competition. Now, we’re excited to present the three awards in the Young Bird Photographer of the Year category, for photographers under age 18.
The photos depict an overhead view of Mallards on a lake, a hummingbird with its tongue out, and a Little Owl in sweet light. Please enjoy.

The owl was watching something on the ground, maybe her next meal...”Nikon D7100 with Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR AF-S lens. 500mm focal length; 1/1,250 second; f/5.6; ISO 800. Handheld.
