I was happily surprised to start the day with a notice from the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) that this image is being showcased on their homepage this week. Here is the link http://www.nanpa.org
When you get to the homepage, several images will cycle through so you may have to wait a few seconds for this one to come up.
I was thrilled that this image was selected as one of the Top 100 Images Of The Year.
Here is the caption that goes with the image:
"This pair of Horned Puffins posed themselves beautifully on their rocky perch during breeding season. While their colorful bills were beautiful, and their black and white feathers in lovely contrast to one another, this monochrome artistic rendering brings out the texture and contrast more clearly than what our eyes see in a color image., Bird Island, Cook Inlet, Alaska"
1/1250 sec at f/8, ISO 800. Canon 100-400mm f.4.5-5.6L IS II lens set at 400mm on Canon 7D Mark II body. Handheld.
